Pottery: red-figured cup. INTERIOR: man leading a cheetah to the left. The man is bearded and wears a himation and an apicate red fillet. His hair has a relief line fringe at the front and three horizontal relief lines over the neck. His beard has, as well as a relief line fringe, a spiral curl in relief line under the front. In his left hand he carries a knotty stick and in his right hand the red lead attached by a ring to the collar of a spotted cheetah. In the field on the left hangs a sponge and a scraper (the aryballos presumably obscured). Border: single reserved line. Relief line contour throughout (except hair); dilute glaze for minor interior markings; added red for inscription.
