SCENES OF THE SPIRAL BAND RUNNING UP THE SHAFT

p174 CI. The siege raised by the Dacians

The town is seen in the distance. It is walled and an opening in the walls signifies, though it does not represent, a gateway. There are buildings within the walls, one is a long narrow one storied house. The Dacians retreat amongst the hills. The greater number seem to be discouraging one another. Three chiefs in sheepskin caps remain to the last, looking back to the walls they have left, loth to go, but seeing that success is hopeless.
