Audience hall, large bathing woman

The central section is dominated by a remarkably tall woman standing at the edge of a pool. The woman is admired by the crowded figures watching from behind a balustrade in the left arcade. Behind her stands a figure dressed in a long robe and a cloak with his right hand pointed towards the tall woman. In the background is a double-storey arcade which represents a pool architecture.
