Description
Stemmed, two-handled cup, decorated in black glaze, except for a reserved band in the handle zone, the outside edge of the foot and the foot underside. There is also a reserved disc (with central black dot and circle) on the interior and a reserved line around the lower body exterior. On the handle-zone band is a black-figure scene of quadriga moving left, driven by a charioteer, with a warrior walking behind. The warrior's shield has a tripod device on one side and a wheel on the other. There are palmettes around handles.
