Pottery: red-figured chous (wine-jug) with trefoil mouth. On the body: a boy reading from a scroll and a boy with a lyre. The boy on left is seated in a chair, a mantle round his legs, reading from a partly-opened scroll which he holds in both hands; on it is written ΑΛΟ. On the right, facing him, is a boy, nude, with left hand on hip and chelys hanging in right at his side; the hair of this figure is long and looped up, with an end falling in front of the ears; that of the seated figure falls in a wavy mass to the shoulders. Above, in the field, hangs a plectrum. Delicate graceful style. Purple stalks and berries of wreaths. Brown inner markings and letters of roll. Below, a strip of egg pattern; above, a band of minute palmettes; on each side, a thin red line, the whole forming a panel.
