Pottery: red-figured neck-amphora, with twisted handles.
(a) Three Greek warriors. On the right a hoplite stands en face, resting right on spear, with helmet tilted back, shield (no device), sword hanging from cross-belt, and short chiton which leaves the right shoulder free and is tied at waist: he looks to left towards two others who advance: the first is a horseman (hippeus) mounted on a prancing horse, in chlamys and petasos, with his spear under his right arm: the other is a javelin-thrower (?) wearing a hemispherical helmet and a chlamys, and carrying his spear sloped over his left shoulder. All these are beardless. Over the centre, ΚΑΛΟΣ, καλός.
(b) A woman addressing two draped ephebi: the left hand one leans on a staff, the other stands en face, but looks to right; both wear fillets.
Strong period. Purple reins, cords of helmet and petasos, inscription, and fillets. Brown inner markings. Below, sets of three maeanders separated by oblique red cross squares. Round shoulder, guilloche: round lip, egg pattern: on each side of neck, a palmette with four tendrils: below each handle, two palmettes back-to-back, surmounted by one smaller.
