Decoration Inside black with reserved disk within one black circle in bottom. Reserved band at lip, just inside. Offset rim is black on outside.

Main design is similar on both sides and shows a seated man between standing women and youths, and a sphinx facing away from the group on eiach side. All the standing figures are facing the seated one: this is perhaps Zeus at the centre of the Pantheon of gods.
