The naiskos is flanked by a kalathos on either side, decorated with black and yellow horizontal lines, tendrils and branches, as well as yellow tongues and yellow meander pattern.

The handles are black. The reverse is decorated with floral motifs: the area underneath the vertical handle is black, with an H-shaped black motif divided in two by a vertical line, on a round, brown background. The surface below the vertical handle depicts two fan-shaped palmettes, from which emerge elaborate, voluted floral patterns that expand to the surface below the horizontal handles. The lower part of the body is contoured by a wavy-like pattern on a brown background. The area below is black, although streaky on some areas, while the lowest part of the body is reserved but glazed. The foot is black, with a reserved resting surface. 2001.99.0150.jpg
