The Thracian goddess Bendis is greeted by the gods Apollo and Hermes. Apollo is seated on a rock, wears a quiver, and holds a hare in one hand and a laurel branch in the other. Hermes wears a petasos (traveller's cap) and holds a caduceus or herald's wand. Bendis is dressed in a Thracian body-suit with an animal-skin cap and holds a hunting spear and plate in her hands.
