Hymen standing, embraces Dionysos with right arm and raises torch with his left arm. At left Dionysos sits upon throne, together with lion; he leans left hand upon pitcher, supports hand thyrsos with right. At right Venus sits, holding a wreath with each hand. Upon clouds in foreground at left, the mask of satyr, with tamborine and other musical instrument on vine. At right, two kissing doves. Below caption: "Imene Bacco e Venere." Verso: perhaps written by Giani, "26" and "44."
