A: Rider on a rearing horse to right (Solomon). He is wearing shoes, tunic, mantle, and crown (?), stabbing a woman lying on the earth with a spear held in his right hand. The woman has long hair and is raising both her hands in a defensive gesture (Lilith). Rest of an inscription around, beginning above the tail of the horse: : [- - -]μ[.]ν →[Σολο]μ[ώ]ν.
B: Inscription in three lines: σφρα|γισθε|ου → σφραγὶς θεοῦ. 'Seal of God.' In the third line on the left, an unidentified object (a scroll?)
