Detail of Zeus battling the giant Porphyrion from a painting of the Gigantomachia (War of the Giants).
Zeus brandishes a lightning-bolt in one hand and holds a royal sceptre in the other. He is crowned with a wreath of laurel or oak and has a cloak draped across his arm. The Gigante is armed with a rock and equipped with a crested helm and a shield painted with a coiling serpent.
