A blue Nemi sits on a stand between two crowned figures who pour water over his head from gold posts. A white crescent shape
is beneath them and a zigzag river flows below. At the bottom dancers and musicians flank the stream. At the top to the
left other crowned figures hand the water pots to the two who lustrate Nemi. On the right are a group of auspicious symbols.
