Italiano: Sacrificio di Ifigenia : Ifigenia, figlia di Agamennoine, viene portata di peso da Ulisse e Diomede al sacerdote Calcante, pronto a sacrificarla ad Artemide, il cui simulacro è a sinistra sulla colonna. Agamennone, completamente avvolto nel suo mantello, impotente di cambiare il volere degli dei, è racchiuso nel suo dolore. Intanto ecco arrivare dall'alto Artemide che salverà Ifigenia sostituendola con una cerva.
