Cols 7-8 A man holding an open book stands before three men seated in a room with a tiled floor, on the right side of the upper panel. The man seated on the right (Haman), sits on a high-backed chair while the other two men sit at a table, each holding an open book on his lap (Es. 3:12). On the left side of the panel, Esther stands in the palace garden followed by two maidens. She faces Hathach who stands before her gesturing with both hands. Mordecai stands at the king's gate on the right of the garden wall in the background (Es. 4:5).
The bearded Ahasuerus sits under a canopy on the right side of the upper panel, extending his scepter to the crowned Esther. She kneels before him and touches the scepter (Es. 5:2). Two maidens stand behind her in the doorway and two servants stand behind the king's throne. On the left side of the panel, the crowned Esther sits together with Ahasuerus and Haman at a round laid table in the palace garden (Es. 5:5).
Cols 9-10 Haman, in red, stands talking to two women in his house, on the right of the lower panel. The gallows prepared by Haman for Mordecai stand outside his house on the left (Es. 10-11, 14). Ahasuerus reclines on a bed in a room with a tiled floor, on the left side of the panel. Two men stand before his bed, the one on the left reading to him from a book (Es. 6:1).
