Kylix in superposed color; Corneto: tomb group under investigation (includes sacrifice of chariot team). 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.
