Title:   Red Figure Psykter Fragments
Category:   Pottery
Description:   Seven fragments. Plain maeander, left, below figured zone. Inside unglazed.
a) Preserves the wall of the vase from the top of the lower cylindrical portion to near the top of the figured zone. Parts of three figures: center, a draped male, bearded, standing left, holding a staff over his left shoulder. A second staff rests on the ground in front of his feet, crossing diagonally from the left. At the left, a left foot, left, the weight resting on the ball. At the right, the lower part of a nude figure, moving right. Between the last two, an inscription, painted in red.
b) Part of the border, and of two figures: at the left, a standing draped figure, right, a staff, perhaps his, in the field. At the right, a nude figure, facing; the left leg seen in front view, the right in profile to left. In the field behind him, a pick.
c) Part of the border (chipped), and bits of two figures: a foot right, and a right hand, its fingers resting on the toes of the foot.
d) Wall fragment: parts of two nude youths, right, he at the left seated, his bent left arm resting on bent left knee; he to the right standing. Along the break at the right, traces of some representation.
e) Wall fragment (not certainly belonging). At the left, an outstretched arm, with folds of drapery hanging over it. At the upper edge of the fragment, seen against the line of arm (or hand), is a bit of added purple. At the right, part of a draped standing figure.
f) From near the top; above, tongues, at the left edge a bit of a head with an incised scalloped hair outline, and a narrow purple fillet.
g) A scrap of the lip of this or another psykter, flanged for a lid; (cf. P 6639). Glazed inside; outside, upper part and top of flange reserved. At junction of neck and shoulder a fine moulded rim, with a scraped line above and another below. No pattern on the bit of shoulder preserved (contrast fragment f). [i.e. probably not this pot; missing since 1957.]
Relief contour carefully drawn throughout except on fragment e) where it is partial only. Inner drawing scanty, sketched with dry point. The sharply incurved wall of the vase, just below the maeander border, is much worn from use.
Fine pink clay; good glaze. Fragment e) appears rather browner, and more micaceous than the others.
