CM: The National Archaeological Committee describes the present work as follows: "3. Black-figure lekythio of the Archaic Period (700-480 BC). On the shoulder are presented radiantly four miniature dressed figures in a s tate that is only barely preserved. On the front side a man rides a wild horse, flanked on either side by a couple of figures, of which the party near the horse is naked. The couple behind the horse seems to be to follow it towards the other couple while conducting, as shown by their gestures, an intense conversation." The description is confirmed by Professor of Classical Archaeology Lila Marangou.
