Pottery: red-figured column-krater.
(a) Symposion. Two bearded men recline to left on two couches, leaning left arm on striped cushions; the one on the right has a broad radiated band (ampyx?) tied in a bow behind the ear, with end hanging down; he raises on his right a phiale, addressing his companion, who turns towards him, holding up in his right by the stem a large kylix; this one is wreathed, and has his left arm wrapped in his mantle; both have the legs draped. In the foreground between the two a flute-player stands, to right, playing on flutes; she wears a long chiton with apoptygma, and her hair is looped up with a radiated fillet. In the background hang a taenia (on left) and a ring-shaped object (wreath ?). In front of each couch is a table, on which is a dish with flowers.
(b) Three draped ephebi. The one on left moves away to left, looking back at the other two; his right arm projects over the border of the design. The central one holds a staff. In the field hangs a pair of halteres (jumping-weights).
Round the lip, in black silhouette on red, two pairs of animals, a lion and boar, stepping towards each other.
