The inner half of the shelter is divided into two storeys : in the lower are three chambers with square doors while the upper is open, with two small pillars as further support for the roof. The door, painted red, is in a corner of the yard. In the court are a series of large vases, a man behind them leaning forward, a table with beer jars, two baskets (?), two flat trays, a large vase lying on its side on a support like a barrel on trestles, a man with a yoke on his shoulder and lastly a joint of meat ... In the rooms at the back are little bits of wood, flat and of the shape of an isosceles triangle. There is further a little circular table , the leg of wood , the top of bronze , and two objects which may not form any part of this model, namely, a small ewer of cast bronze, 6 cm. high, and a basin to correspond of beaten bronze, both of them inscribed.
