Fabric_description
Munsell_color 2.5YR 7/6
Decoration Underneath, between palmettes; A: Two satyrs around an amphora (oxypythmenos), the left satyr leaning towards and pushing the amphora, while the right satyr, also leaning towards the amphora, rests his hands on his left thigh; B: Two satyrs advancing to the right, the one in the rear holding either a branch with a heart-shaped ending, or a rhyton. The right satyr's stance makes him appear to be running. The rest of the vessel's body is black. The interior is also black with a reserved disk, 8.5 in diameter, containing a central dot and two concentric circles, the one close to the dot and broader than the other, which is closer to the edge of the reserved disk. Underneath, part of the base's hollow, conical surface of the stem is painted with a broad circular band.
Inscriptions
Condition In two places, part of the rim has broken away. There is also a deep crack in side A, from the part of the rim next to one handle, almost up to the part where the other handle springs from. Colour has peeled off in some places, especially the interior. The body of the satyr to the right of the amphora was a bit damaged when paint was still wet.
