In this piece, a chariot transports the Roman General Scipio Africanus. He carries a sceptre in his right hand and a bouquet in his left. A winged figure holds a laurel wreath over his head. Around him, musicians follow and the procession continues in front of him towards the gates of the city; in the crowd an elephant may be seen.
