Lid of Nicosthenic pyxis lacking minor parts of wall. Underside unglazed. Upper part glazed except for reserved, figured zone encircling knob. In zone are four nearly identical groups: a single cavalryman in combat with a single hoplite. Dots to suggest inscriptions in field. Two hoplites carry round shields frontally represented; the two others have round shields shown in profile. 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).
