The remains of this krater belong to the upper portion which is mended from numerous fragments and plaster inserts.
The other sherds from this vessel were registered as having been unearthed in the area of the Sanctuary of Apollo. The register for this sherd does not specify where it was found at the site.
Alexandridou appears to give the krater an Attic origin.
