33.4.3 The mouth, neck, and handle are black, with some reddish patches. There are two reddish brown lines above the shoulder carination and two below it. The body scene depicts a naked youth in profile to the right, offering a bird (duck?) to Charon (the ferryman who conducts souls to Hades). The latter, standing on his half-moon shaped boat, wearing reddish-brown clothing and a dotted ovaloid headdress, is accepting the offer. Below, there is a reddish brown line on a reserved (but glazed) area. The rest of the vessel is black, with the exception of a red line on the upper part of the foot and its reserved (but glazed) vertical element. 2001.99.0009.jpg
