Shoulder fragment sheared off at junction with neck. Max. dim. 0.054. Burn, Meidias Painter, p. 97, cat. no. M 4.

Two women (hair with diadem decorated with a maeander pattern, left shoulder with chiton and cord of left; face and top of head with stephane decorated with a lozenge pattern of right). The left woman appears to stand frontally, head to left. At the very top are a relief line and a bit of reserve, which indicates the beginning of an ornamental pattern. Relief contour: profile. Dilute glaze: surface between locks of hair. Added clay: leaves of left diadem.

The Meidias Painter (ARV2 1313, 4). Not from a hydria, as suggested by Beazley because of the pattern once at the top and the manner in which the fragment sheared off indicating a sharp angle with the neck instead of a continuous curve.
