Decoration The outer edge of the rim has a thick black band. Below this, is the main zone and the handles.

Either side of each figure, are palmettes which end in a curling vendril with a pendant. Below this is a thin black band, then a reserved one. The rest of the body is black, until two thirds of the way down the edge of the foot. The lower ridge of the foot is reserved. On the base of the foot, the edge is reserved. Most of the base is black except for a thin reserved band near the ridge and two bands on the inside of the well in the foot. Except for a reserved band around the inside rim, inside the body is entirely black.
Inscriptions
Condition The rim next to one handle has a small area of sandy deposit and shows where the glaze has been slightly rubbed away. On the rim near the other handle is a larger amount of a more whitish deposit, which is also on the inside of the pot. The glaze on the handles is marred by large amounts of greyish/green deposit, which also covers a large amount of the glaze lower down the body and on the base of the foot. On the main zone on side A, there is a whiter deposit. On side B, at the foot of Pegasus, there is a deep scratch. In the base of the foot, there is a crack down one side of the well.
