Description:   Mended from many pieces. Lower part missing, with entire base (restored in plaster), also interior fragments including the face of Dionysos. Ridged handle with projection on either side at attachment. Round mouth with moulded lip; top edge colored red. The figured panel is right of center and depicts Athena and Dionysos. Athena's shield covers the upper part of the two close-standing figures; they both face left. Red is used for helmet, crest, beard, alternate leaves of ivy wreath, rim of shield, hair(?) of Athena, garment folds and ornaments; white (poorly preserved) for flesh of Athena, shield emblem (a bent leg), dots on dress and helmet. Beard of Dionysos appears over edge of shield; for neck of Athena the white has been painted over the glaze, the incision of the shield border has been interrupted and the red shows a broken edge overlapping the white. A little above this point the wall of the vase received a dent before firing.
Glaze thin across back. Fine fabric.
