In front of boskets leading to a semi-circle of boskets pierced by niches with statues, a tall column crowned by Astronomy(?) rises. At its base, upon rocky stones, Hephaestus(?) and Venus(?) are sitting. Along the edge of the fountain are four pedestals with figures of women holding cornucopias, the one at left inscribed with POM[ona]. In the foreground at right, a clergyman, a lady, a gentleman converse in front of the fountain.
