Η αγορά στη Σπάρτη. Πίσω η ακρόπολη, μπροστά το άγαλμα του Αγοραίου Ερμή, ο οποίος κρατά τον μικρό Διόνυσο. Πίσω από αυτόν ο ανδριάντας του Δήμου των Σπαρτιατών, κι έπειτα το ιερό των Μοιρών, στο οποίο ο τάφος του Ορφέα, προς τα αριστερά του θεατή. Στα δεξιά η Περσική στοά, που φτιάχτηκε από τα Περσικά λάφυρα.
