5. Standing female figure, facing left, wearing chiton and himation, her hair bound in a kerchief.
Further right, a palmette; beyond, a fragment of a draped standing figure from another scene.
The upper fragment shows the heads of five persons, though of the Satyr's only the top, and of the woman facing him only a part, remains. On the lower pieces the figure of the Satyr is preserved from the waist down, together with portions of the four draped female figures belonging to this scene, and a fifth draped figure from a scene at the back. Around the top, tongue pattern; around the bottom, key broken by crossed squares; on both sides, palmettes.
