Decoration The handle is black. On the shoulder there is a voluted palmette with petal-shaped divisions between two draped male figures facing each other, holding their himatia with their left hands. There is part of a thin line that contours the lower part of the shoulder. The upper part of a warrior is preserved, wearing a red helmet and carrying a shield. There is also the lowest part of a figure's drapery and his feet. He seems to step on two red lines, and the rest of the fragment is black. A fragment shows part of a figure's feet, which also step on two red lines. There is a broad, black band on the foot, with the rest of the underside is reserved.
