REDMG:1951.144.1 McPhee and Trendall 1987, IVA/118, 127-28: The cuttlefish, with body outlined in white and decorated with black horizontal stripes, two large black eyes, and a cluster of tentacles (some white), is typical of a particular painter denoted by the Group of Karlsruhe 66/140. Further characteristics of this Group evidenced on the Reading plate are the bream's pectoral fin, which takes the form of an open fan with vertical cross-strokes; and the use of a mussel as filler; the decoration of the central depression with a rosette of the 'ice cream cone' type, surrounded by a wave border; the laurel wreath on the overhanging rim. 2005.99.0120.jpg
