Title:   Red Figure Oinochoe
Category:   Pottery
Description:   Mended from many pieces; much of the wall and all of the base missing; restored in plaster. The flaring foot on the analogy of a fragment found in the same filling but not certainly belonging.
The figured decoration largely complete. Ground line, a row of small heart-shaped leaves painted black on a reserved ground bordered by lines. Above, Nike, flying right. She wears a long foldless chiton with bell sleeves, the sleeve and skirt hems bordered with dots between double lines, the dress dotted all over. Similar dots and dotted bands on the wings. Her hanging hair is bound by a stephane, and its ends are gathered in a bag. Between her outstretched hands she holds a long fillet extended. Its ends reach nearly to the ground line. It is decorated with a row of dots between black lines, and appears slightly wider at the ends than in the middle. Her left hand also grasps a long leafy branch and a round-bodied trefoil-mouthed oinochoe. Her right hand is missing; a trace perhaps of some object just below the fillet and above the position of the hand suggests that it also may have been carrying something: phiale?
Partial relief contour; the drawing glaze worn and peeled in places; the background glaze mottled to red and in part peeled, epecially towards the back and inside the lip. Glaze inside to the bottom of the lip only; inside unglazed.
The shape is unusual with the point of greatest diameter unusually low for an oinochoe of Type III.
Context:   Grave Area east of Great Drain; area outside N.W. wall of House G, layer III.
