Pottery: black-figured neck-amphora. On the neck, (a) chain of palmettes, and (b) double honeysuckle.
Design extending round both sides: Perseus fleeing after slaying the Gorgon.
(a) On the right, Medusa fallen to right, beheaded; she has a short chiton with skin over it, endromides, and wings outspread. On the left is another Gorgon full face, in archaic running attitude to right, attired as Medusa, with tongue out and snakes in hair.
(b) Perseus and Athene fleeing: Perseus flies to right, in the archaic running attitude, looking back; he is bearded, with long hair, the κυνή Αϊδον, long embroidered chiton, talaria, and the kibisis slung round shoulder. Athene is in the same attitude, with long tresses, high-crested helmet, aegis, and long chiton.
In the field, imitation inscriptions.
