There are four vertical rows and three horizontal columns of mythological creatures in the decoration register. The decoration register is delimited by two lines of embossed molding. While the mythological creatures in the middle are depicted in a similar fashion, the ones at the front and the back have differences. The mythological creatures holding cauldrons are lion-bodied, bird-winged and human-headed. The mythological creatures shooting arrows have human feet, are winged and their heads and tails both end with a dragonhead. Winged horses and lions are also present.
