Scene 40

SCENES OF THE SPIRAL BAND RUNNING UP THE SHAFT

XXXIX. Sacrifice of the suovetaurilia

A fortified camp semicircular in form with a praetorian gate in one flank and another wider in the right wall. These walls are battlemented, and two tents, one a hut with arched entrance perhaps to be left permanently, both are roofed with planks. Inside a sacrifice is being offered by the emperor dressed. In this way the new campaign opens as did the last.
