Below, band comprised of stopt maeanders (3) alternating with cross-in-square (1), between two reserved bands; broad reserved band at join of body and foot; reserved band on lowest ridge of foot as well as resting surface and underside. A: A draped woman runs in 3/4-view to the right but looks back, profile the left. She holds in her lowered right hand a wreath from which a garland hangs and in her upraised left hand a box (decorated with bands, chevrons, and zigzags, as well as white dots above the box), while drapery falls over her left arm. She wears a stephane and a kekryphylon with dangling ribbons, beaded earrings and double necklace (indicated by white dots), double bracelets on each wrist, a belted, sleeveless chiton, and slippers. In the field are a fillet (upper left), a rosette with five white dotted petals and a yellow centre (upper right), and a shrub with berries (lower centre), as well as a white dotted groundline rising slightly to the right. B: Eros, holding a beaded necklace in his extended right hand, is seated in 3/4-view to the left on a flower. The leaves and buds of the same plant elaborately fill the field beneath and around him. He wears attributes that are similar to those of the woman on A: stephane, kekryphylon, earring, double beaded necklace, double bracelets, and slippers. He also wears a beaded baldric diagonally across his chest and ankle bracelets (3 on each ankle) and a baldric comprised of a row of white dots arranged diagonally across his chest, over his left shoulder. Added white is used for details of Eros' wings as well as the jewelry, box decoration, slippers, vegetation and groundlines, as well as the centre parts of the eggs on the egg-and-dot band. 2003.93.0379.jpg
