APC Image: AK 0992Black-figured Kylix. Kylix with offset lip, decorated on the interior. In the center, a gorgoneion (the cup is upside down in the picture); around, two zones of seated and standing figures and riders. The tongue and part of the beard of the gorgoneion are preserved. The fragment at the bottom of the cup as photographed should have been "restored" nearer to the horse at the left, so that the figure with uplifted left arm would have been closer to the horse, and the horse at the right of the fragment thus have had more room for its head and its forelegs. Third quarter of the sixth century B.C.
