Rose Emblem

This is the figure of Apollo playing the cithara. It is an allegoric symbol having it's origin on a Greek amphora dated 400 B. C. 

Notice the object being held in Apollo's right hand. It is a Greek phiale or drinking vessel. The singer has paused in his wanderings to ask for refreshment from a listener.
