CM: The National Archaeological Committee describes the present work as follows: "16. Attic white-ground lekythos of the High Classical period (450-420 BC) attributed to Achilles Painter or his circle. Immediately below the shoulder runs a decorotive pattern in which the meander prevails. The rest of the surface appears to be devoid of further decoration." The description is confirmed by Professor of Classical Archaeology Lila Marangou.
