Pottery. Impasto. Fabric similar to MS 763, grey at core, red toward surface which is chestnut brown. Joins MS 669. Bowl had been set on a foot to which it did not join. Correct foot catalogued with contents of Vulci 42 F and appears in that record photo. Chipped. Handmade. Medium polish. Rim offset and curved in profile. Ornament confined to fenestrations of the foot and the plastic figures of a man and 2 horses; man stands on shoulder of the vase, the horses on the rim. The bowl was combined with MS 762 in Jan 1937, however the entire piece is being called MS 761. It has been published this way and the card for MS 762 speaks only of a base.
