"Two persons in the usual Perso-Palmyrene dress seated majestically in two
large and fine carved armchairs. Both wear the Mithraic tiara, both are bearded
and wear a drooping, short, black moustache, both have the Iranian type of face.
In the l.h. they hold a white roll and in the right a black cane with a flat top".
The whole has been painted in a brownish yellow colour. Probably these Magi
represent the patres of the Dura-community.
