The infant genius stands on a globe held by the female charioteer, and pours coin from a small horn of plenty. In the roundel representing Evening, two horses pull the chariot downwards. The reins of one of the horses are held by the charioteer, whilst the other's are held by the infant genius, who also swoops downwards.
