CM: The National Archaeological Committee describes the present work as follows: "1. Black-figure lekythos of the Early Classical period (480-450 BC). Its shoulder bears decoration of three palmettes in assymmetric order. The entire of its front, defined above by the outer edge of the shoulder and below by the black stripe, is occupied by two satyrs play, between which a draped figure rides a bull brandishing branches. The details – eyes, folds, muscles – are rendered by incisions. The head of the central figure and much of the satyr on the left is weathered.The lower part of the vase is black-glazed." The description is confirmed by Professor of Classical Archaeology Lila Marangou.
