Description:
In the center, a massive man dressed in ancient Greek military garb holds a shield with an advertisement for Pate de Regnault [Regnault's remedy]. With his right hand he pushes skinny, slumping Achilles into a tent on the left. Achilles carries ducks wrapped in newspaper (symbols for newspaper rumors [Brandeis Institutional Repository]), 'Le Constitutionnel' in his left hand. Another tent is visible in the background on the right.
