Title:   Red Figure Cup Fragment: Type B
Category:   Pottery
Description:   Much of the floor, part of the wall and rim, and the start of the stem preserved; two non-joining rim fragments with parts of handles and handle ornaments may belong. In medallion, a satyr holds a tray of fruit in his left hand before a draped woman who grasps a thyrsos in her right hand. The medallion is bordered by a maeander broken by cross squares; at the corners of the squares, a large round dot; a glaze cross at the reserved center.
On the exterior, on one side, parts of two figures, a satyr, left, and a figure holding a thyrsos; on the other side, a bit of a satyr.
No relief contours. Of the two handle fragments b) and c), b) appears to belong and c) though more carelessly drawn, may also belong or at least come from a very similar cup.
ADDENDA Added fragments give the following: On exterior, upper part of medallion with parts of three figures: Dionysos between maenad (right) and satyr (left). The god is ivy-crowned, nude save for a cloak, which falls across his left shoulder and is held in his right hand. He stands frontal, looking left, and leans on a thyrsos held in the left hand.
