On the south side, a Greek hoplite, on the left, helps one of his comrades, who collapses from being hit by the arrow of a Persian archer depicted on the right, at the other end of the stone. In the center, a Greek with a shield in his left hand chases a Persian horseman, while another Persian is lying on the ground dead.
