Title:   Black Figure Epinetron Fragment with Plastic Attachment: Head
Category:   Pottery
Description:   The vase to which this was presumably attached is not preserved but this part is complete though chipped. On the front, in high relief, a woman's head and neck full face. Eyebrows and outlines of eyes drawn in black, also the cord of a necklace. Red on hair, lips, eyes and three pendents to the necklace. The face and hair are framed by a projecting band (red zigzag between black line on the cream slip). This band is the front edge of the wider back part of the object which forms a sort of headdress, and is covered with black glaze. Its back edge shows probable traces of attachment all the way up and down except where chipped; just within edge, slopped-over glaze; inside otherwise smoothed but not glazed. The lower edge probably hung over; the center is chipped away but the extremities show red paint.
ADDENDA One fragment (b), mended from two pieces, from the walls of the epinetron were found in Box 80. It preserves the part of a side edge. Two pattern zones: the pattern of the outer one might have been rays; key rightward fills the inner zone of the long side and another pattern that of the narrow side. The field is covered with scales filled with <graphic>. No incision. White fills the outer zone. Glazed inside.
