Bacchus and the Water-Thieves

Figure descriptions
A man, identified as Bacchus in the poem text, stands with his wrists and ankles tied to a mast on the deck of a ship. He is nude except for a loose piece fur which hangs from his shoulder and drapes across his body. He also wears a crown of vines. A group of angry men surround him; they raise their swords and daggers in the air. One man, who faces away from the viewer, drags an axe behind him as he approaches Bacchus. 3/4-page illustration contained within a single-ruled border.
