First and second register

In the first register we see a zebu tied to a tree and a shepherd fighting off a lion's attack. Then follows a soldier with a Phrygian cap, armed with lance and shield, spearing a lioness.

In the second register, two mounted hunters with dogs are spearing a bear and a wild boar.
