Description

Kylix in superposed color; Large tondo, encircled by continuous wavy line within wheel-painted lines. Naked male figure, wigs outstretched, in 3/4 view, striding toward left with right foot forward. He holds a wreath in his left hand and seems to hold a branch over a construction which is possibly an altar with his right hand. The altar consists of a spreading base, a short shaft, and a heavy Doric capital. Flames rise from the top. Exterior: On each side two draped figures face one another. Largely intact but several pieces broken off and glued back on. All decoration in pinkish yellow with much incision for winged figure. From Corneto.
