"On a sort of three-wheeled scooter, this young cupbearer is dressed in a cloisonné mother-of-pearl cap, a silver surcoat and a skirt with alternating sides of crystal and jasper, inlaid with chalcedony, over a long tunic with a jasper braid with three globule trihedrons. Wearing ankle boots, he carries a pitcher with a semi-tubular spout in his left hand and a drinking horn (rhyton) in his right." Jacques Santrot
