Munsell_color 5YR 6/6
Decoration Black inside and out except for an egg-and-dot band framed by two black lines at the front of the base of the neck, the figural design, and the reserved underside. Body: A satyr seated between two similar palmettes (the left one larger; each is comprised of a flower in the middle of two volutes framed by a short half-heart-shaped pattern on either side). The satyr is seated in 3/4-view to the left on a rocky mass that is spotted (perhaps it is covered with an animal skin). He looks profile to the left and he wears a taenia or band on his head, as well as a long, beaded necklace over his left shoulder and across his chest. He holds a phiale (its rim is marked with yellowish dots) in his left hand and a fillet in his right hand. The fillet is purple. The taenia, necklace, and rim of the phiale are coloured white with yellow wash. On the back a drip of (probably accidental) white paint.
