Inventory Number:   P 1000
Section Number:   ΣΤ' 475
Title:   Black Figure Skyphos
Category:   Pottery
Description:   Mended from many fragments, but complete save for a small piece from the lip, another from one side, and chips. Flaring ring foot, glazed above and decorated beneath with concentric circles of glaze. The handles are set ca. 0.02m. below the rim, and curve upwards slightly. Just above the attachment of the handles, the body contracts slightly, to flare again at the lip, giving a slightly offset effect; "cup-kotyle".
Beneath one handle, a goose with raised wings; beneath the other, a cock(?) with head turned back over its shoulder. On either side, between the handles, appears a similar scene: a youth riding a hippalektryon, facing right. On each side of the rider is a standing draped figure looking toward him, their further hands held in front of the figure and covered with drapery. The riders wear short jerkins. Added purple is used for the head-bands with long pendent ends of the standing figures, for the caps of the riders, for the necks and rumps of the hippalektryons, for a stripe on the wings of each of the birds, and for the long garment of one of the spectators. Traces of added white remain on the jerkin of one of the riders, and on the outstretched drapery of the figure facing him. Incision careless and sparing. Inside black glazed.
Buff clay. Good glaze somewhat lustrous; peeled on parts of the figures.
Early Attic.
