2007.10.2.311 A large female figure reclines in the centre of the scene. She is dressed in robes and is wearing either a helmet or a cap (Phyrigian cap?). Her left arm is resting on a disembodied (bearded male) head and her left hand holds a staff which rests against her upper-arm or shoulder. Beneath the large female figure and to the left of the male head are two shapes which possibly represent boats or ships. These shapes might indicate that the portion of the scene below the female figure is in fact a river or the sea. In turn this might suggest that the disembodied head is emerging from the water (possibly identifying it as a river god). To the left of the scene a very small figure appears to be presenting the large female figure with something, possibly a basket or urn. A slightly larger figure, leaning on a stick, looks on from beneath a tree. Above the very small figures head are two animals (presumably intended to appear to be further off in the background). One at least of these animals is certainly a horse. To the right of the large female figure's head there is a representation of a stag. At the top of the scene in a central position are three shapes. It is unclear exactly what these are (possibly huts or houses of some description?).

To his left is the forepart of a pig (or dog?), and to his right, a basket with three corn stalks. There is also a red, thin line at the joining point of the plastic ring and the lid. The decoration of the side surface of the lid is a motif of vertical, hanging, wavy tongues, between reddish brown bands.

Two white female figures stand within the naiskos.

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
