Two terracotta plaques of Persephone and Hades, the one on the left dating from ca. 540 bce, and the one on the right dating from about 470 bce. In both, the pair sits enthroned. On the left-hand plaque, Persephone holds a drinking cup, and tiny worshippers approach, the man offering a rooster and the woman an ear of barley. On the right-hand plaque, a rooster stands beneath the throne, and to its right there is an stand with pine cone atop it. Hades holds an offering-bowl in his right hand, and a pomegranate branch in his left. Persephone holds a shaft of wheat in her left hand, and a rooster in her right hand. Roosters in such contexts are sometimes interpreted as symbols of fertility; they also appear commonly on vases as love-gifts.
