Pottery: red-figured column-krater.
(a) Thracians charging. Two youths in alopeke, short girt chiton, high leather boots, and zeira with heavy embattled designs fastened on chest and floating behind, charge to right, each with two spears in right. The foremost runs on foot, and has a crescent-shaped shield of wicker-work (indicated on the inside by crossed diagonals in brown) on his left arm; the end of his zeira hangs over his right forearm; the other is on horseback, and has his spears couched. Between them hangs a bucranion (?) covered with a festooned taenia.
(b) Three draped ephebi. One on right stands with right on hip, conversing with another; the third on left looks on, leaning on a staff. On left of central figure hangs a pair of halteres (jumping-weights); on right a ball (or perhaps an exaggerated aryballos with straps).
Around the lip, a frieze of animals in black silhouette on red ground, carelessly drawn; on each side is a lion springing to left between two boars galloping towards it.
