A: the Muse Calliope giving a lyre to a youth; the Muse Ourania with phiale and oinochoe and a wreathed youth with a lyre. B: the youth Musaeus with a Muse with phiale and oinochoe; a youth receiving a lyre from a Muse. All youths are wreathed, mostly with laurel. I think some of the youths are being presented with lyres by Muses.

In the same position for Musaeus: Μο^σαι^[ο]ς{3}.
