Description:   Mended from many pieces; much of the boy's back and part of his right side missing. The hair hangs in a mass of conventionalized curls nearly to the middle of his back. The hands are lightly clasped, with a space left from side to side as if to hold something: a fillet? A groove at the top of the head, in front, just beneath the aryballos-neck, indicates where this band may have rested. Detailed modelling; finger- and toenails represented. Top and handle black glazed; eyes and eyebrows painted with glaze paint.
Pinkish-buff clay; fine polished surface.
