Corinthian Black-Figure Kotyle. Reconstructed from fragments; one handle restored. There is repainting along the joins but the figures are not badly affected. The lip is uneven. Normal Corinthian cream-buff clay. Dark brown to black paint. The inside was painted solid although little of the paint is preserved. There is no paint on the handles. At the lip, two lines, then vertical squiggles, then two bands.

The main zone has an owl, right (below the handle), a panther, right, a goat, left, and a panther, left. Purple-red was added for the necks and bellies of the panthers and goat, and for a stroke on the hindquarters of the first panther and of the goat; also to decorate the owl's wings. Below is a broad band and then, at the base of the wall, rays. There is a band of paint on the foot; the resting surface is reserved. There is a band on the inner face of the foot, and in the centre of the underside of the floor are two circles within a broader band.
