The Titan Prometheus (far right) is seated, busy with the crafting of mankind. Behind him stands a goddess (Tones ?), and above the butterfly-winged Psykhe (Soul) and Hermes holding acaduceus wand. In the lower left corner stands Aion (Time personified) holding a band inscribed with the signs of the zodiac. Beside him is seated Gaia (Mother Earth) surrounded by a host of little Karpoi (Fruits) carrying their baskets of fruit. Aion may here be the same as Ouranos (Heaven), the consort of Gaia. The four winged ladies above Aion labelled "Erop-" or "Erot-"(?) are probably the goddesses of the four seasons. Beside them stand figures labelled Georgia (Farmer) and Gripeus (Fisherman). Both wear rustic caps.

Along the top are the heads of four blowing Wind-gods and a pair of winged boys named Drosoi (Pure Waters) who pour liquid from pottery vessels. The winds in the top left hand corner are labelled Notos (South Wind) and Euros (East), and those at the top right Zephyros (West) and Boreas (North).
