On the body is depicted the rape of Deianeira by Nessos. On the left stands a woman with a Daedalic hairstyle, wearing a red himation over a black chiton, and a red polos (?), profile to the right. Herakles, wearing his belted lion skin over a short tunic, and his quiver on his back, advances to the right, toward the centaur Nessos, wielding his sword in his right hand. Herakles' wife, Deianeira, wearing a red peplos, rides side-saddle, profile to the right, on the back of the centaur Nessos, but turns her head profile to the left, with her arms upraised, beseeching Herakles to help her. Nessos holds his left hand at waist level and his right hand to his head, seemingly in surprise. On the far right stands a woman, wearing a red himation over a black peplos, profile to the right, holding her himation out in her upraised right hand.
Two antithetical fawns, grazing, with a rosette above their ears.
The base is decorated with rays.
