Pottery: red-figured hydria (water-jar). On right a woman in a sleeved chiton and himation is seated in a chair extending both hands (the right holding a fruit) towards an infant, who is brought towards her by a second woman, and who turns to right, extending his arms towards her. This woman wears a long chiton with apoptygma tied: both women wear a radiated stephane on their looped up hair. Composition graceful, but drawing careless in parts. Purple fruit and stephane: brown inner markings. Eye in simple profile, with eyelashes. Below and above design, egg-pattern. Design extends over shoulder of vase.
