Pottery: red-figured one-handled cup. Bearded satyr moving rapidly to left with left hand drawn back and right raised over his head, open with palm upward, as if he were throwing something; he is bald on the crown, and wears a fillet with a long vertical piece over the forehead. On the left on the ground is a cotyle; on the right, his thyrsos, set upright; it has three bunches of berries at the head, and a horizontal sprout on each side of the stem. Across the field, ????S, ?a???. On the foot, incised characters, very finely traced, but unintelligible. Refined, delicate style. Purple inscription, fillet, and berries of thyrsos. Fine brown inner markings. Eye in simple profile, with brown pupil. Below, a thin red line, continuous.
