Pottery: red figure lebes gamikos (ritual cosmetic box ).
Designs red on black ground. The ornaments in relief have probably been gilt. On the shoulder, tongue-pattern.
Two Nikae flying one from each side towards a female figure, the one on the right with hair in a knot, the other wearing a close cap; both have long girt bordered chitons with diploidia, and carry alabastra in one hand. The female figure rushes to right, looking to left; she has a fillet and necklace of raised beads, hair in a knot, bracelets, long girt chiton and bordered diploidion reaching to the hips; in right hand she holds up a cista, in left a circular pyxis (?), mostly broken away; from either hand hangs an embroidered taenia. In the field, two embroidered taeniae and a mirror.
