Oinochoe shape 8. Minor bits of lip and body restored in plaster. Fully glazed inside and out except for bottom; the very bottom of the wall.; and, above it, a thin ground line. Standing on the ground line is a nude youth bending over toward the right, left foot forward, arms straight down, hands near together, evidently preparing to jump. In the field above, behind him, is a jumping weight(?).
