Shoulder lekythos with flaring mouth and disk foot. The handle is black on the sides. On the shoulder, a row of short tongues above hanging lotus buds. The buds are connected above and below by entwining arcs, skipping two buds at a time above with black dots between them, and skipping one bud at a time below. At the junction of shoulder and body, a large band in added white is framed by a double black line above and below and decorated with a row of “S”. The lower part of the vase is black with a single reserved band. The main register shows a scene composed of three figures and a quadriga: on the chariot, a bearded man dressed in a mantle, holds the reins of the quadriga. Behind the horses, a draped female figure is recognizable by her long hair and traces of added white. The third figure is a naked man walking ahead of the quadriga.Added white: female flesh.Added red: mantle folds of the bearded man and the woman, mane of the horses, taenia(?) on the head of the three figures, and also a thin line on the ground.the painted decoration of this lekythos can probably be compared with some groups of Attic Black Figure lekythoi, like the Haimon Painter and its entourage, or the Class of Athens 581, dated by Beazley and others scholars approximately between 525 and 475 BCE (see various volumes of the CVA for lekythoi in Leiden, London, New York and Athens collections).
