Epistle of Othea: Text, Hercules -- Before cave leading to underworld, Hercules, wearing armor, raises club held in right hand above head of Cerberus, tongue extending from mouth, standing on hind legs with bird's feet. With left hand, he grasps chained collar around Cerebus' neck. Within cave and amid flames, two other soldiers, wearing armor, battle demons with swords.
