Description:   Mended from many fragments; restored in plaster. About half the rim, both handles (except the attachment of one), and a large part of the sides missing. Offset lip. Medallion scene depicts wine-boy running with amphorae on an anaphoron. Missing from the medallion: a fragment from the upper right, including the end of the carrying pole and a bit of the rim of the amphora beneath; a small fragment from the lower right with the boy's right heel and part of the bottom of the same amphora.
Relief contours; incised hairline; the eye full face, open at the inner angle; the iris a dot near the center. The ear outlined at the top with a relief line but not differentiated from the cheek at the bottom; in its center a single vertical line. The boy wears a short jerkin, which comes down over his shoulders, and a painted wreath. The amphorae are tied to the pole by painted cords. Of the wreath only the stain remains but a little red is preserved on the cords.
Good black glaze inside and out. On the outside, reserved: the space between the handles the outside of the foot and the resting surface, and the top of the stem, beneath, the latter with painted dot and circle. The ring at the junction of stem and foot set off b y two carelessly scratched lines.
