Title:   Black Figure Skyphos
Category:   Pottery
Description:   Depicts rearing horses, men in Phrygian caps. Mended from many pieces. Bottom and a large part of one side gone. Apparently the same representation on both sides, though the one (slightly more careful) is largely missing. Sphinxes face the handles. Behind each, an archer(?). The four horses perhaps draw a chariot: same indistinct drawing behind hind legs in both pictures, same shield(?) over back of rear horse. Accessory red carelessly applied. Slightly offset rim, thickened at edge, with reserved line on top; around bottom, vestiges of a reserved band with short vertical strokes, alternately red and black. One small fragment preserved which does not join.
