Pottery: red-figured calyx-krater.
(a) Eros and Aphrodite. On the left Eros, a full-grown boy with wavy hair falling to his neck, flies upright to right, holding out in both hands an object (not indicated) to Aphrodite (?), who moves towards him, in a long chiton, mantle, and radiated stephane, carrying a sceptre obliquely along her left arm.
(b) A woman in a long chiton and mantle, holding a burning torch to right.
Fine period. Brown inner markings. The upper part of Aphrodite and the hand of Eros have been restored in a raised waxy-looking substance, which may possibly be ancient restoration; it is applied also to this part of the laurel wreath border. Below a, sets of three maeanders in alternate directions, separated by dotted cross squares; below b, key pattern. Round the lip, laurel-wreath.
