Bath, Pozzuoli, De Ferris -- Four male figures stand under four arches of arcaded passageway. One figure raises right arm, perhaps throwing a stone. Two other figures, with bows and arrows, hunt birds perched in windows of and atop house and ruins of another building, possibly of Roman bath. The fourth figure raises both arms toward birds.
Below, within archway composed of roughly cut masonry, a group of nude male figures bathe. One figure, head bent, washes hair.
