Detail of the Anigrides nymphs from a comedic painting depicting the cleansing of the wounded centaur Chiron in the river Anigrus.
Two Anigrides nymphs peer out from the rocky entrance of their cave. One faces forward while the other is depicted in profile. They have exaggerated lips and noses and are labelled "NYMPHAI". Two actors pantomime the centaur Chiron below them (not shown).
