The scenes captured in this drawing--made from a Hittite vase--depict the activities that may be associated with an arzana-house. The top register shows three musicians on the left and a scene of sexual intercourse on the right. Below that, a person makes an offering to an altar while two figures (partially obscured by damage to the vase) sit on a bed. The two bottom registers show more scenes of music and feasting.
