Title:   Red Figure Oinochoe Fragments
Category:   Pottery
Description:   From the shoulder of a small pot; oinochoe. Thin glaze inside along lower edge of fragment only. Outside, below border of egg pattern, head of youth, right. Partial contours, the hair brown.
Many more fragments, found in tins, give the full width of the panel decorating the front of the oinochoe, with plain reserved lines bordering it at the sides and an egg pattern above. There are two figures in the scene, the youth who holds a large tray for offerings, and a wreathed, draped male figure facing him. Between them is a low altar; the upper part of the youth is complete; the rest very fragmentary.
Traces of pink wash on the boy's body; his diaphragm muscles are indicated in brown. He wears a white wreath, and there are white flower sprays sticking out from the tray and hanging from the table. Sloppy work. Thin, streaky red-brown glaze inside.
b) The lower left corner of the panel with a maeander broken by cross squares, below. There remains the lower right leg of the youth; behind him, a staff and the end of a table. (This fragment (b) does hardly belong -Clairmont.)
c) Preserves part of the ring foot, reserved beneath and washed with pink.
A number of other fragments, unfigured, from the walls, exist but were not numbered separately and not photographed.
