Category:   Pottery
Description:   Part of the lip and upper wall remains, mended from several pieces. The lip band is decorated by a garland of ivy, the side wall by two zones of figures separated by a band of ovules. Of the upper zone there remains, from left to right: the ribbon-bound heads of two figures moving right, one of them having negroid features; the crown of the head and the right hand of a figure waving a branch of ivy; Hephaistos(?) riding right on a mule, holding a kantharos behind him; Dionysos(?) leading the mule with his right hand, carrying a kantharos and thyrsos in his left; the right leg of a figure moving right.
White, washed over with thinned glaze, is used for the berries of the ivy, for the hair ribbons, the reins, the letters. The leaf-stems of the ivy are painted in thinned clay. Relief lines used sparingly. Much of the glaze used for drawing has fired red; the background glaze a deep chocolate brown.
From the same vase as P 44 (found in 1931), which preserves from the lower zone a standing youth with a lyre hanging on the wall, and in the upper zone the footstool, scepter and a bit of the drapery of a seated figure.
Cf. P 44b, found 1938.
