First side: It is shows the Trojan prince Paris abducted Helen--the beautiful wife of Menelaus, king of Sparta--and carried her off to the city of Troy, the Greeks responded by mounting an attack on the city, thus beginning the Trojan War.
Second side: It is shows a depiction of Dionysus, the god of wine, reclining on a ship with a billowing white sail. Vines are climbing up the mast and dolphins are swimming around the ship. Dionysus had been captured by pirates and carried off to their ship. At sea, however, the god appeared to the men in his true guise, whereupon the men, seized with panic, jumped into the sea and were transformed by Dionysus into dolphins.
