  • Pottery: red-figured kylix:   INTERIOR: Trainer and boxer. A bearded trainer stands to the right, but looks back over his shoulder to the left. He wears a himation (black border; battlement border around shoulder only), shoes and a red apicate fillet in his hair (tails at back). The hair down the median line of his stomach is done with irregular short strokes in dilute glaze. He holds a forked stick out in his right hand; his left is within a bunch of drapery behind his back. On the right stands a naked athlete tying a thong (drawn in relief lines) around his raised right hand and wrist. His left leg is frontal, his right leg flexed behind his left with only the toes touching the ground. He has a red apicate fillet in his hair (tails at back). Preliminary sketch reveals that the trainer's arm was originally intended to have been bent up at 90°, holding his stick vertically.   Border: dotted cross-squares alternating with three units of stopt maeander (anticlockwise); additional maeander unit at 10 o'clock.  EXTERIOR:  athletes.  Side A (upper): boxers and pancratiasts. On the left is a pair of boxers in a bout. The boxer on the left has his left arm bent up in front, his right arm back, and there is a dilute line on his cheek. His opponent, facing to the left, is seen in three-quarter back view, his left arm out in front, his right drawn back for a blow. His cheek is heavily marked with relief lines, under the eye and along the cheekbone, to denote swelling. The thongs of both boxers around their hands and wrists are painted in red. In the centre is a pair of pancratiasts down on the ground. On the left, the youth has his torso frontal, his right leg tucked up under resting on the ball of the foot and partially obscuring his genitals, his left leg outstretched to the right. His head is turned to the right, his right arm is out to the left, fist clenched to deliver a blow, his left holds his opponent's head in an armlock, his fingers seeming to claw at his opponent's right eye and the palm and heel of his hand covering his mouth. He has a relief line marking his cheekbone and two dilute creases on his brow. His opponent has a frontal face. His legs are wrapped round the first youth's left leg and he has both hands to that youth's face, his thumbs probably searching for his right eye. Above them hangs a discus in a bag - the discus is decorated with a cross and the mouth of the bag with dots - and a pair of thongs. On the right a bearded trainer steps forward, his forked stick raised over his head to stop the fouls and the fight. He is dressed in a himation (black border) and shoes; his left arm is under the himation. On the far right is a column with a plain one step base and a plain termination at the top.  Side ? (lower): hoplitodromos and boxers. On the left a hoplitodromos moves to the right, wearing greaves and a thick reserved fillet round his head. He carries a shield on his left arm and holds a helmet down in his right hand (missing fragment had part of crest and calf of this figure and, on the inside, part of the maeander border). In front of him stands a trainer, whose torso and left leg are fully frontal, but his inclined head is turned to the right. He wears a himation (black border) and a red wreath and holds a forked stick in his right hand, his left arm akimbo under the himation. In the centre a pair of boxers fight with open hands. They both have red thongs around their hands and wrists and the outlines of the cheeks are marked with dilute lines. The boxer on the left has both legs frontal. His left arm is extended in a defensive position, while with his right he wards off the left arm of his opponent. The boxer on th
