Title:   Black Figure Oinochoe
Category:   Pottery
Description:   Mended from many fragments. Most of the neck missing (one non-joining piece preserved); gaps in sides. Squat body; high swung double handle, with three rivet bosses where it attaches to the lip. Handle and neck covered with worn brownish glaze inside and out save under arch of handle. On rising shoulder, palmette decorative border. The sides are nearly vertical, flaring slightly to their angle with the shoulder. They are reserved and decorated with a series of figures: about the center, front, is a nude or semi-nude slim-waisted male figure (upper part missing) between two girls in belted short-sleeved dresses, the right (better preserved) holding a slender staff. The rest of the field is taken up with six pairs of mantled figures in conversation, five standing and one seated on cross-legged stools; they are punctuated by hanging fillets and vertical rows of dots.
Streaky brownish glaze; traces of accessory color for dress ornaments. The flat bottom (unglazed) rests on a very low ring base which appears to have been covered with matte red.
