A centauromachy was illustrated on the soles of her sandals, and the helmet was decorated with griffins and sphinxes.

The shield was decorated on the outside with an Amazonomachy, and on the inside with a Gigantomachy. On the statue base was illustrated the birth of Pandora, the progenitor of the race of women. </li></ul>
