Campanian red-figured pottery lekane lid. Round the bottom of the cover, wave-pattern; above, two female heads to left, with close embroidered caps, radiated in front, and necklaces; between them, palmettes. The top is in the form of a small lekane on which are two female heads and palmettes, as before; one handle is broken off; the cover of this is formed by a small lekythos with stand, on which are two female heads confronted, with close caps and necklaces.
