Restored from any fragments. One handle, part of other, some of central area and minor sections restored in plaster. Interior, in tondo, a warrior with helmet, shield and pendent drapery runs to left, looking back. Exterior, battle scenes on both sides. A, left to right, large male, semi-recumbent, attacked from right by nude soldier; 2nd nude soldier attacks a falling warrior at right. B, left to right, a warrior with shield w. boar foreparts pursues a 2nd at left; a right a figure wearing a leopard skin and a pointed cap with lappets attacks a semi-recumbent male at right. Beazley calls it "Wider Circle of the Nikosthenes Painter." In Beazley Addenda 2, p. 177, no. 19, it says this cup is "from Cerveteri not Vulci" but that information actually belongs to the next entry on p. 177, a cup in Boston (08.30a).
