Red-figure squat lekythos with globular squat body, disc base, tubular neck and one handle extending from neck to shoulder with elliptical cross-section. On body red-figure representation bordered on the downside with Ionian Kymation (kind of floral decorative border); on the left is represented a standing robed male figure facing right and holding two spears with the left hand, possibly Apollo. In front of the figure is preserved a pair of wings. The central part of the scene is missing: only part of a seated male figure is preserved. On the right side is represented a standing, winged, female figure facing left and holding a large vase on the right hand. Last on the left is represented a standing, female figure in relaxed posture holding a scepter with the left hand. The backside is decorated with palmettes framed by floral decoration of spirals which tendril out; on shoulder a band of wreath and outlined, solid tongues; dated in the 4th century BC.
