Pottery: red-figured kylix.
Interior: Within thin red circle, Warrior charging to right, with couched spear, long hair, helmet, pelta, and greaves.
Exterior: (a) Between two Pegasi springing inwards, Dionysos (bearded, wreathed, long chiton, with dotted skirt, himation over left shoulder, bracelets) moves to right, looking back, each arm extended with a nebris hanging from it. On either side a Seilenos advances: the one on left looks back and is wreathed.
(b) Between two Pegasi as before: A Maenad (wreathed, long chiton, himation over right shoulder) dances to left, looking back and playing castanets, between two dancing Seileni who are also wreathed. In all three designs the field is scattered with letters which have no meaning, and seem to be various assortments from those which are inscribed (meaningfully) round the edge of the foot.

The figures of the exterior are drawn with a view to covering as much space as possible: see especially the extended arms of Dionysos in (a), which are out of all proportion: purple reins, wreaths, and inscriptions.
