2008.2.1.61 There are a large group of 10 figures, 5 are standing and 5 are seated. They are engaged in festivities; the second and third figures from the left are holding bowls and appear to be offering them. Behind the seated figures are two standing women who appear to be balancing baskets of fruit on their heads. The two figures on the far right of the scene appear to be playing musical instruments. The scene is framed by two trees, with their branches intertwined above the group of figures. Above the figures there are two small winged figures, possibly cupids.
