Side A: To the left is Herakles, walking to the right. He is nude, and carries his lion skin flung over his left arm. His right arm is extended to receive the garment from Deianeira. She stands in profile to the left, offering the garment with her right hand. She wears a peplos of crinkly fabric, and a cloak with black border over it. On the ground between the figures lies Herakles' club. Side B: A standing woman wearing a peplos.
On both sides there is a horizontal border with an egg-and dart pattern above and below the figural panel.
