Description

Complete though mended. Shape generally as Richter and Milne, Shapes and Names, fig. 162. Disk foot. On both sides a pair of eyes and on both sides at both ends is a satyr. In the center on one side is a crouching, bearded figure earing a petasos, a mantle of some kind draped around his upper body. On the other side is another, between the eyes, much defaced, draped perhaps the same but it is difficult to tell. Sprays in the background, a heart shaped leaf under each handle.
