Category:   Pottery
Description:   Mended from many fragments. The mouth, one of the lugs and fragments of the body and bottom missing. The decoration is in horizontal zones: at the top a zone of tongues alternately black and red, then a zone of vertical zigzags interrupted by the black, unpierced lug handles, then the figured zone, then a reserved zone and finally on the rounded bottom a sort of rosette of rays, alternately short and long.
Figured zone: A) A winged female figure running right with a draped standing male holding a spear facing her on either side. B) At center, a man facing left wearing a chlamys over his shoulders and gesticulating with his right hand. Facing him on either side are first a man with a long chiton holding a spear, then a man with a chlamys also holding a spear.
Red is used on the winged figure for the fillet, for the upper part of the wings, the upper part of the peplos, and its lower border; on the other figures it is used for hair and for broad stripes and large dots on the garments. White is used for the flesh of the winged figure and on garments for circles of small dots around the large red ones and for a row of small dots along the upper part of the lower border of some of the peploi.
