Pottery: red-figured kylix, with low foot and offset lip.
Interior: Within two concentric circles, two women conversing. The one on left is seated on a rock, closely muffled in drapery: the other stands to front, with face turned to left and holding in her right a sceptre. Both wear sleeved chiton, himation, and a fillet looping up the hair.
Exterior: (a) Symposion of a bearded man and an ephebos: both recline to right on a long cushion or mattress, decorated with vertical stripes, and resting on the ground. The youth looks round at his companion, who looks downwards, and holds in his right a phiale. They lean on striped cushions, and wear mantles leaving the right shoulder free, and woollen fillets. In the field hang two pairs of objects roughly drawn, boots or halteres (jumping weights - ?).
(b) The same, except that here the bearded man looks at his companion.
Drawing careless and mannered. Beneath each handle is a palmette, from which issues on each side a tendril ending in a flower.
