Description: A demon and a heretic pull a sledge - on which sits a skeleton and a group of naked men transfixed by a mirror from which peacock feathers sprout - into the mouth of hell. The Latin superscription reads, "Heretics and Devils have the same purpose" and the text below, "With what might and like-mindedness do they both fight? To flames of Phlegon they have drawn souls.".
