The interior presents a particularly fine but also sober depiction of a warrior; he grasps a spear and is accompanied by a boy, probably an attendant. The artist carefully articulated the elements of the warrior's dress and armor; by putting the helmet to one side, he could render the pensive, downcast face. The exterior shows more animated scenes—boxing, wrestling, and preparing to throw the diskos.
