KenchreaiIV: Thompson1934, pp. 379-380, no. D 35, figs. 66a, 66b (Athenian Agora)
Description
Slight everted rim with groove below. Molded relief. The following description of the decorative motifs is adapted from KenchreaiIV: “Near the rim are two subsidiary zones, one of double spirals and one of ovoli. The main group concerns two goats flanking a kantharos. Between these groupings are from top down, an Eros with cornucopia, a garland with Dionysiac and Pan masks and two opposed birds.“
Preservation comment
Two joining sherds preserve small part of rim and adjacent wall. Slight, somewhat extensive abrasion; worn breaks; rare specks of encrustation.
