Description:   Fragment from the interior medallion. The border consists of alternating tongues of black and red bound on both sides by concentric circles and alternating dot bands. Within is the head and left shoulder of a male figure, facing right, probably holding a spear, of which the point remains. The hair and garment are painted in a reddish purple, like the tongues, with details carefully incised. A wavy edge outlines the hair on the forehead; at the back the hair hangs to the shoulders where the ends are bound together. The eye is frontal and the ear large and high-set. The figure is wearing a chiton with high rounded neck and sleeve that comes just below the shoulder. The exterior has alternating bands of red and black, varying in width.
Behind the head are inscribed the letters: <graphic>
