A: Rider on horseback, to right (Solomon), trampling over a figure lying on the ground (Lilith). The rider wears tunic and mantle, right arm raised and holding a spear. Lilith lies naked on the ground, her arms are raised in defence. In the free field behind Solomon, an eight-pointed star. Inscription around, beginning next to the feet of Lilith: σολομ|ω → Σολομώ<ν>.
B: Inscription in three lines: εισθ|εοσ|υγια → εἷς θεὸς ὑγί<ει>α. God and health are the same? (Michel). Or perhaps: acclamation and prayer for health?
