Scene 39

Scenes of the spiral band running up the shaft

 pnnn  XXXVIII. Reception of another ambassador

Trajan attended by his two lieutenants receives two men on embassy. They are cloaked and dressed in the usual Dacian trowsers (not as the personage last received by the emperor.) They appear by the action of the hands to remonstrate against the severity of conditions offered them. The emperor holds his cloak in the left hand, and seems by the action of the right to insist on his terms. Meanwhile a walled enclosure is being prepared.
