Pottery; two Attic red-figure squat lekythos fragments from shoulder, body and foot.; Nike running right with both arms extended. Fragment a) preserves most of Nike's upper half (back of her head and top of her wings missing) as well as her advanced left foot on the ground line; her legs are lost. She wears a sleeved belted chiton (thickish material without lines for folds) with double vertical stripe in brownish dilute glaze. The slanting relief line crossing the lower edge of her chiton overfold probably denotes the top of her right thigh. Fragement b) gives the toes of her right foot just above the reserved ground line. Her toes and the fingers of her left hand are indicated by three straight vertical lines.
