REDMG:1951.159.1 On neck, between black handles, an enclosed palmette (11 petals on A and 9 petals on B; with two concentric arcs for heart on A, black dot for heart on B), black dot on either side of central petal, and black dot in the upper corners; black ridge below black line; frieze of vertical bars below each handle attachment; beneath each handle two superimposed palmettes, with a pair of volutes between, from which emerge tendrils, sprouting quarter palmettes. A: egg-and-dot frieze, between two black lines; white ribbing (painted); two reserved bands; floral frieze on shoulder (four volutes from which emerge flowers, tendrils and secondary volutes) emerging from the lower right; two reserved bands; scene. B: Continuous maeander to right, between two black lines; black ribbing (painted) between two pairs of black lines; a female head, profile to left, wearing a sakkos, from which emerges curly black hair, at front and back. Below the body zone, around the entire vase, is a decorative band consisting of dotted broken stopt maeanders to left (pattern doesnÂ’t match up on side B, to the left) between two reserved bands; black below. Scene, A: A naiskos comprised of two Corinthian columns supporting a tapered epistyle and black pediment, on top of a podium (white maeander on a brown background, between alternating black and white horizontal bands). Two white female figures stand within the naiskos. The figure at left, standing in 3/4-view to the right, wears a himation over her left arm and hips, over a peplos (decorated with two vertical purple bands on the chest). Her hair is bound in a sakkos from which emerges hair at front and back; her jewelry includes a beaded necklace and two bracelets on each wrist. She holds a fan in her raised left hand as well as a wreath in her lowered right hand. She faces another woman (probably the deceased) who is seated in 3/4-view to the left on a stool (diphros) and rests her feet on a footrest (hypopodion). She wears a short sleeved chiton and a purple himation that she holds above her right shoulder in an unveiling gesture (anakalypteria). Her hair too is bound in a sakkos, from which emerges hair at the back; she wears two necklaces, one beaded, and two bracelets on each arm. A small ornament (or pures) hovers in the field between the two women. On either side of the naiskos is a kalathos (basket), below a rosette (red with added yellow and white), above a pair of white balls interspersed with clusters of three white dots, and above a double line of white dots. Each basket (both are identical) is decorated with a cross-square with intervening triangles (top) and alternating bands of zigzags, and white and black lines, as well as a band of vertical bars. 2005.89.0030.jpg
