Costume drama set in Athens. Polymos lies dejectedly on a couch. He cannot be distracted by the wealth and pleasures around him and puts his hands to his temples as if he was ill. His wife, Chrysis, orders the dancer Chloe to entertain her husband. Chloe appears before Polymos and beginning slowly, she dances for him as if she were the incarnation of a beautiful statue. Polymos succumbs to the charms of her dance and is fascinated by the beauty of the slave. Chrysis becomes jealous, throws herself between the two and chases Chloe out of the room with curses. In the palace garden, Chloe prays to the god of nature and wraps her arms around the neck of the statue. Polymos appears behind her and they run into each other's arms.
