Herakles and Busiris

Busiris, a mythological king of Egypt, sacrificed foreigners in his country and planned no exception for the Greek hero Herakles. Inspired by a play, the representation depicts Herakles and Busiris flanking an altar and attendants with the equipment for carving up and cooking the visitor. Herakles turned the tables and killed Busiris.
