Pottery: red-figured lekythos. Nike, wearing chiton with apoptygma, her hair looped up, flying to right towards an altar, holding out both hands, as if they supported a garland or sash. The altar is roughly in form of an Ionic capital, with necking of cable pattern. Graceful style. Eye in profile. Below, a continuous thin red line; above, a strip of key pattern; on the shoulder, two rows of rays.
