Title:   White Ground Bobbin Fragment
ΤΙΤΛΟΣ:   Τμήμα κουβαρίστρας με παράσταση ανατέλλοντος Ηλίου 480 π.Χ. περίπου
Category:   Pottery
Description:   From a double disc: bobbin or yoyo? Nearly two-thirds of one disk preserved; broken at the left.
On the disc, Helios with the solar disk on his head and a goad in his hand, rises above Mt. Hymettos in his chariot which is drawn by winged horses. The scene is edged by one narrow and one broader black band.
Streaky glaze on the back; the full thickness of the hub (ca. 0.007) is preserved. Outlines black to golden brown (not relief contours). Dull purple red (worn brown) for the charioteer's himation, his goad and the harness of the horses. Thick bands of added white, possibly once painted over with brown, outline the mountain ridges. A similar substance seems to have been used for the sun's rays. Thinned glaze on manes and wings of horses.
