Mended from many fragments with the missing pieces restored in plaster and painted. Flat-bottomed, hollow ring base, flat on top, sides slightly convex with a groove near base. Three skyphoi attached to base, each with a hole pierced in its floor and through the ring. Diam. 0.165; H. of ring 0.04; H. to top of skyphos. T. L. Shear, Hesperia 7, 1938, p. 346, fig. 29; P. E. Corbett, Hesperia 18, 1949, p. 316, cat. no. 18, pl. 84.

On the front of each skyphos were probably two women: (1) drapery of one to right; upper part of one to right, looking back (illustrated); (2) the same; (3) what remains is unintelligible, probably the same as the other two. The glaze is so poor that it is difficult to tell what they are wearing. On side of base, laurel wreath to right; on top side, lotus buds.

For this shape, see the remarks by Corbett, Hesperia 18, 1949, pp. 316--317.
