Rome, wearing a tiara, against the crowns of which are "Avarice", "Pride", "Lust" and papal costume, is mounted on a horse and blows a horn and gallops towards where "Christian" figured as a lamb, sits on the earth, and within a circle of flames, over which is "Zech. 25. I will be unto her a wall of fire round about". Behind Rome is a gentleman, riding on a mule and pointing with a baton of command towards the lamb (this figure probably hints at the Duke of York). Doeg and Nabal are mounted on a to the chase. Pride rides an elephant. Over the inscription from Zech. 25. is a tree, on each side of which is the ficure of a huntsman. In the lower right-hand corner are figures of two Turks, i.e. infidels, These, with the dogs which accompany them, form "The Anti-Christian Crew". The dogs are named "Thine", "Mine", "Treachery", "Self-interest" wearing a Jesuit's hat, "Hypocracy", "Idolatry" wearing a cardinal's hat, "Adultery" wearing a hood, "Ignorance" wearing a mitre, "Ambition" wearing a cap, and "Strange" i.e. Sir Roger L'Estrange.
