Description
"Representation of a sacrifice. The principal personage raises the left hand in sign of prayer, and with the right arm holds a cup, into which Victory pours wine. A young man cooks the flesh of the victim over the flame; on the other side of the altar, the flute-player, who ordinarily assists at sacrifices. All three are crowned with laurels and ivy."--from source text.
