40006865, Cades, 12.II.A.510, At the foot of an old, knobbly tree is a statue of a bearded Bacchus with thyrsus and cantharus. A satyr sits nearby on a rock (succinctly dressed) and holds a goat by its front hooves,whilst it places its hind legs on an altar. On the other side is a female bacchic follower extended out on the ground (half-clothed) and seen from behind. She has a thyrsus between her arms and with her right hand she is touching a timpany which hangs from the tree. Panpipes also hang from the tree near the satyr., Cades, T.: Impronte dell' Instituto, Cameo
