A scene depicts Zeus seated on a simple plinth in the centre of the panel, his body facing left, his head facing right. He holds a staff in his right hand, a drape covers his legs. To either side stands an attendant, a clothed female on the left, facing right with a staff in her left hand, and a predominantly naked, possibly female, figure on the right, facing left. Lack of detail for the figures suggest this could be a maquette for an eighteenth-century or nineteenth-century relief or a cast from a badly weathered classical relief.
