As on Side A, three men and two seated boys in what appears to be a schoolroom. Note the hare which the man in the center is offering to the boy. Here the boys are more fully clothed than on Side A. Here the man on the far right seems differentiated from the suitors, as if he is the schoolmaster, or one of the boys' fathers. An inscription reads, "Eigodamas is beautiful."
