Pottery: Campanian red-figured bell-krater.
Designs red on black ground, with accessories of white and yellow on both sides. Above each design, a laurel-wreath; below the designs, wave-pattern; below the handles, palmettes.
(a) Farewell scene: A female figure seated on a rock to right, with hair gathered in a white cap open behind, earrings, necklace, bracelets, long chiton with beaded girdle fastened with fibulae on the shoulders, and white sandals. In left hand she holds out a wreath and a dish of fruit to a beardless warrior wearing a white helmet with double plume, white linen cuirass with belt and shoulder-straps, short chiton, and white greaves. His left hand rests on a shield painted white, and his right holds out a spear round which is tied a taenia; between them hangs a phiale. Over the female figure is a vine-twig, and behind the warrior a branch.
(b) Two ephebi conversing, wrapped in himatia, with beaded fillets; between them hang a pyxis and a string of beads, and on the right is a rosette.
