Pottery: red-figured lekythos. Nike in a long undertied chiton, with hair falling loose (one tress in front of ear), fillet, and bracelets, flies to right, holding out in her right an oinochoe, in her left a phiale, from which wine flows on to a blazing altar having an Ionic capital, with three sashes attached to its shaft. Late and careless stage of severe style. Purple flames, wine, inscription and fillet. Below, pairs of maeander separated by black cross squares. On shoulder, which is left red, five black palmettes; round the neck, black rays.
