Knights of Pythias magic lantern slide in color. The slide depicts Damon and his slave. The two men are in front of a small stone edifice. One man holds a knife in front of a slain white horse on the ground, while the other man angrily points his finger. A city is in the background. The image is within a black frame with ornamental gold decoration. On one side of the image is a white label with typed black text. The label is on the the proper right side and reads " Knights of Pythias - First Rank / 6a Attempt of Damon's Slave to Prevent His Return."
