Pottery: black-figured oinochoe (wine-jug). Trefoil mouth; handle ending in cross-pieces. Design black on pale buff ground; purple accessories. Two warriors in ambush (perhaps Odysseus and Diomedes): They crouch down to right, and are bearded and fully armed, with short chitons with purple spots and folds indicated; on their greaves and cuirasses are volutes. The hinder one has a snake to right as device on his shield, painted in purple. In the field are three trees; also branches spreading out on either side from under the handle.
