Explanation

  • The tutelary spirit of poetry is playing a stringed instrument and at the same time placing his foot on the prow of a ship adorned with a sword, a reference to the warship which Byron had armed at his own expense in 1823 in order to join the Greeks in their struggle for freedom from the Turks. Behind the other foot can be seen a container full of scrolls, a reference to Byron’s poetical works.
