Nicosthenic pyxis. Men, youths, and women. Beazley, Paralipomena, p. 108: "The lowermost cut on Hoppin 201, published by him as part of the Florence pyxis, is taken from Milani Mon. scelti pl. 1, 5, and represents a pyxis in Philadelphia, from Orvieto (MJ 174 and 176)." On p. 174, the pyxis MS 3439A appears with the lid MS 4846; on p. 176, the lid MS 4846 appears alone. And it is MJ [Museum Journal] v. 6 (1915).; small parts of all elements restored in plaster. Procession of male and female figures, for the most part draped, converging from two directions on an isolated mude male figure leaping or dancing.
