On upper body: battle scene, "a fight between foot soldiers and cavalry. Below this is a funeral scene: a long procession of men and youths with their right arms extended in a gesture of farewell to the dead. On the neck of the vase there are two figures, one on each side: a young warrior, and a man holding a sceptre. The mouth and the lip of the vase are each decorated with a white wavy line, an ornament traditional on loutrophoroi and derived from the serpent of geometric times." (Beazley)
