Title:   Red Figure Pyxis Lid
Category:   Pottery
Description:   From a straight-walled pyxis, the lid of which fitted down over the box; most of the vertical sides of the lid broken away; remains of black-patterned decoration of zigzags. The top of the lid complete except for chips: very slightly domed; the edge, grooved, projects slightly beyond the vertical walls. On the top, within glazed bands, outside, black chevron band; at the center, female head, left, her hair bound in a patterned kerchief, but with a few locks straggling across her face. The metal ring handle (missing) would have served as her earring. The glaze background not fully filled in over her nose. Dull glaze; no relief contours.
Context:   Well.
