Additional fragments found in "Ostrakon Fill" join and make up to a mug; much of wall and rim missing; restored in plaster. P 17898 also joins. Small flaring foot; deep rounded body, plain rim, outcurved; vertical band handle below rim. A line around the bottom of the wall reserved; also the resting surface and the space inside the foot; this with a circle and dot at the center. A single figure, at the center of the side opposite the handle: Hermes, running left, the kerykeion in his outstretched right hand; he wears pilos, short chiton, chlamys, and winged boots. No relief contour. The glaze beside the figure to the right has chipped away along a line apparently marking the edge of the reserving stripe.
