REDMG:1951.151.1 Black glaze all over, except for red rim, two superimposed decorative friezes at the base of the neck (ribbing between two black lines, egg-and-dots between two black lines, yellow dots below); figural frieze between tendrils; beneath handle one palmette sits atop a second palmette enclosed in tendrils that terminate above in volutes from which emerge further tendrils, ending in volutes, that sprout yet another set of tendrils; egg frieze between two reserved bands encircles the entire body and serves as a groundline for the figures; reserved underside. The scene depicts a youth, nude except for two bands in his hair and a chlamys draped over his bent left arm, advancing (dancing?) in 3/4-view to the right, following two maenads, all advancing in 3/4-view to the right, although the last two maenads turn their heads profile to the left. All three maenads wear two bands in their hair (the last, however, appears as a single thick band), beaded necklaces, belted, sleeveless chitons, and snake bracelets on their left arms (the first maenad has a similar bracelet on her right arm). The youth and the first two maenads hold thyrsoi in their left hands. The third maenad holds a wreath in her lowered left hand. All red surfaces are ruddled, except for the underside, including resting surface. Some added white and yellow highlight details on heads, jewelery and thyrsoi.
