Title:   Red Figure Cup Fragments with Graffito: Type B
Category:   Pottery
Description:   None of the fragments join; the largest is mended from two pieces.
Below the figured rim the exterior of the cup is glazed red. c) shows the beginning of this area, set off from the rim by a reserved and a black glazed band. e) comes from nearer the center of the cup where the red glazed surface is encircled by a second black band and a narrow black glazed line. The interior is red glazed, save that the edge of the lip is black as is the medllion, of which part is preserved on fragment e). There is no border round it, nor any trace of figures, so far as preserved.
Fragments a), b) and c) might belong to the same figure; d) shows part of the torso of another youth seen from the front, his left arm upraised, in his left hand a cord.
Relief contours, except for the outer line of the lips; reserved hairline with a row of small dots in it. The ear indicated by a figure-8 drawn with relief lines, the spaces within the loops reserved. Narrow full-face eye, the corners closed, the pupil in the outer angle. No dilute glaze modeling. The boy's wreath red.
Inscribed on fragment a), just beneath the edge of the rim (scratched with a fine point through the red glaze): <graphic>
