REDMG:1953.25.23 Mouth black outside; reserved neck; black on exterior of handle; band of black vertical bars above band of black rays on shoulder. Body (at front, only): black line; two rows of black dots alternating with white dots; two black lines; figural scene. Body, below: black band, black line, broad black band, black line, black to foot and on top of foot; black band on lower part of concave element; otherwise reserved. Figural scene depicts a male figure wrestling a bull. The figures are flanked by trees with black and white fruits and thin vines. The hero’s clothes hang on the left tree and his quiver hangs above him. While this scene might depict either Herakles with the Cretan bull or Theseus with the (same) bull of Marathon, the incisions on the head covering (slightly stippled) suggest that this is a schematic rendering of Herakles’ lion-scalp helmet. Added white is used for the rendering of details such as fruit on trees, as well as the forepart of the bull, and his tail, while incision is used to indicate the drapery, quiver, and musculature of the hero, as well as his head covering.
