Warriors. Three move to left toward one who falls backwards. Each has a Corinthian helmet pushed back on his head, a round shield, and greaves. Each attacker is armed with a spear, and a plume adorns the helmet of the third. The helmets of the attackers have low crests. The falling warrior (face, nearly all of arms missing) wears a chiton, and his helmet has no crest. The shield devices are a serpent, a bee, and an anchor. Above, key pattern to left beginning under the

handle (there is a dot in the center of one unit). Below, frieze of pomegranates. On the shoulder, up-and-down palmettes with dots in the interstices. Above, tongue pattern. All patterns in black. Preliminary sketch. Relief contour. Rims of shields incised.
