Title:   Black Figure Lekanis Fragment
Category:   Pottery
Description:   Lidless lekanis. About one-fifth of the rim and side preserved, including the greater part of the body and head of one sphinx and the wing of a second(?). The side below the rim is almost vertical. The sphinx is crowned and has a long tail. Rosettes in the field, rays below. Two rows of alternating dots on rim. Applied red on wings, crowns and hair of sphinxes, and on the petals of the rosettes, perhaps also as a wide band around the interior at the junction of the vertical and sloping parts of the side.
Attic clay with reddish core; brown black glaze verging on red on the interior.
Another fragment of the same ware was found with this piece, showing a sphinx of similar type, and with similar dot pattern on the rim. They were given the same number in the notebook, but the profiles are different, and although very alike, the fragments do not belong together. See P 2032 bis.
