A large bowl with typical Megarian decoration, to which a base (small ring, perhaps not complete, preserved) and a flaring wheelmade rim have been added. At the junction of the two, on the line of the twisted horizontal handles, a scraped groove colored with miltos. Bowl: bottom, central rosette, from which rises an imbricated leaf pattern; central band, young satyrs with winged horses, in the field large goat masks; upper border, bands of egg and dart, dots, and small palmettes above spirals. Rim: painted inside and out in white and clay-colored paint ("west slope style"). Ivy pattern on both sides of a white band, outside; inside, pendent drops and garlands, in clay color with remains of white. On the bottom, inside, a scraped circle (Diam. ca. 0.11m.) enclosing four lines of clay color intersecting at the center.
Good metallic black glaze inside and out, somewhat worn on the outside.
