Knights of Pythias magic lantern slide in color. The slide depicts Damon approaching before Pythias is executed. The image shows a man on his knees with his head on a stone with a man preparing to behead him. Five Roman soldiers stand around him and they are all on a stage with a large crowd below. The ocean is in the background and smoke billows from a vessel. 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 / 7B The People see Damon approaching."
