Title:   Red Figure Oinochoe Fragment
Category:   Pottery
Description:   Wall fragment from back and one side of vase, with the lower part of the attachment of the triangular handle.
Ornament: trace of tongue pattern at shoulder. The base of the handle is outlined with a band of egg pattern. Below and beside the handle, an elaborate palmette and tendril pattern, with acanthus leaves below; at the center an inverted bell.
Figured scene: a single figure is preserved, a bearded male, striding right, nude save for cloak over shoulder, petasos, and sandals; (missing: the brows, the brim of the hat, the forearms, the front line of the torso, the left leg below the calf and most of the right foot). The hair, painted in broad black strands over a brown wash, is knotted up at the nape; from this knot escape two long curling tresses, one falling forward over the shoulder, the other hanging down the back. The beard was never painted in. The sandal is elaborately laced to above the ankle; curving out from the back of the leg, at the top of the sandal, is a slender S-shaped projection.
Relief contour for petasos, flesh outlines, and for projection from sandal; in the ornament, only for the bell and for the egg pattern. Brown wash for underpainting of hair and on the bell.
For the shape, cf. P 15840 and P 15841.
