APC Image: AK 1133Pottery from the cutting Y-Z. Top row: fragments are from a black-figured skyphos with moulded lip. The glaze varies between black and red. Of the decoration is preserved a draped figure to right seated on a folding chair, facing him is a seated sphinx. There seems to be room for another sphinx behind the seated figure. The scene on the other side was similar. On either side of the handles were palmettes. Red and white paint and incised lines were used for accessories. This is a striking example of the incredibly careless vase-painting produced in Athens during the period of the finest archaic art. Bottom left - Part of lekythos. On the front is a scene of a warrior to left between two draped figures facing each other. The drawing is very poor. Bottom Right: Fragment of a black-figured lekythos, preserving the lower part of the two figures. The scene seems to have consisted of a warrior between two draped figures. Very careless work.
