SCENES OF THE SPIRAL BAND RUNNING UP THE SHAFT

p169 XCI. The Emperor Receives the Submission of a Native Chief

The Emperor is attended by two general officers. In front of Trajan is a strong guard. They form two lines one standing on a ledge of rock above the other. They are praetorians, and are without their helmet.

A Dacian chief has been introduced into the presence of Trajan before whom he kneels on one knee. He is making signs of submission with his two hands, and looks up to implore mercy from the emperor. The emperor holds out his right hand, and appears to sign to him to rise.
