View of the sculptures of the now lost Incantadas monument at the southern entrance of the Roman Agora of Thessaloniki. The sculptures were incorporated in the house of a family of Sephardi Jewish merchants. British consul Paradise, who has come to show John Stuart and Nicholas Revett the monument, meets the owner of the house. A young servant offers the consul a cup of coffee while from above the owner's wife reprimands her husband for not having invited the consul to sit before offering him coffee. On the left, a woman who is spinning approaches the travellers. On the right, Stuart and Revett with the young son of the British consul, who is escorted by the consul's dragoman (interpreter).
