Magical Image of the Third Face of Libra in Picatrix

In the third face of Libra ascends a violent man holding a bow, and before him a naked man, and also another man holding bread in one hand, and a cup of wine in the other; the signification of these is to shew wicked lusts, singings, sports and gluttony.
