According to Schöne in BdI, in this painting was Orpheus between the Muses with Hercules;

The names of the persons are shown in Greek:

 

 

Orpheus, sits, centre, at the foot of a hill, wearing the outfit of a citharista, and playing the lyre. He is facing to the right.

 

  

Euterpe, with a lyre, is standing to the right.

 

Thalia, is standing to her right and both are embracing.

 

Hercules is in the left foreground, sitting on the lion’s skin; his club is laying upwards on the ground.

 

Urania is distinguished by this graffito as one of the two muses standing above Hercules and behind Orpheus.

The two muses are embracing and the second, all enveloped in a white cloth that covered her head well, and identified also by her stern expression, is the celebrated figure of Polyhymnia. 

 

.

Terpsichore sits between this couple and Orpheus, at the rear.

 

.

Melpomene is the lower of two figures sitting up on the hill, but today nearly disappeared,

 

,

Above on the hill, further away, traces of a woman were seen, in what seemed to be white clothing and nearby the rest of an inscription that was evident to be the end of the name; Since however none of the names of the Muses are combined, it should perhaps be thought to be

 

Eurydice? It was possible that the artist had shown the wife of Orpheus as being attracted by the loving singing of her husband.

 

Unfortunately, the state of the painting does not permit a secure judgement; the upper part to the right, with the four other Muses was all lost and fallen.
