Behind Cleopatra, three woman stand in a row, looking toward her. They are dressed in almost identical fashion. The women at the exteriors hold a harp and a lute. The room in which they stand is ornately decorated: Egyptian deities line the walls and painted pottery stands on a high shelf. A stool behind Cleopatra depicts mountains and enslaved figures tied together at the neck. The stool is covered with a leopard or cheetah pelt. In front of Cleopatra, incense burns on a small platform. Full-page illustration contained in a single-ruled border.
