Description

Lekythos. Original card says: "Man and youth approaching tomb with gifts." At time of recatalogung (1979) much has faded. Of figure on left only profile head facing right remains which looks more like that of a girl. Rather broad central stele bound with a braod fillet in three places. At right only the red cloak, reaching to ankles remains. Intact.
