Pottery: red-figured hydria. Two women stand confronted: the one on left holds out a taenia in her right, the other an object which was formerly restored as a rhyton terminating in a boar's head; what remains seems to be the neck and lip of an alabastron, for which the action of the hand of the figure would be suitable. Each wears sleeved chiton and himation, and has her hair looped up with a fillet. Between them stands a calathos filled with wool. Graceful style. Purple taenia, fillets, and wool. Eye in profile. Below, a strip of running maeander.
