A terracotta group on a circular base of a male bacchant holding a vase, accompanied by a female bacchante who carries a tambourine full of fruit on her head and holds a child by the hand. The naked girl and youth run forward, with their weight on respectively the left and right foot. He holds a wine jug with his right arm and passes his left round the waist of the girl. With her left hand she leads a running putto, carrying a thyrsus over his left shoulder. With her right she supports on her head a tambourine full of grapes. Drapery thrown over her right shoulder joins the two figures, together with an animal's skin which is suspended across his thighs by a thong passing over the left shoulder. On the ground, there is a vine branch and syrinx.
