Physical description
Shallow dish with a low stem and in the centre a circular depression surrounded by a ridge. Decorated in red-figure with three fish, one of which is a 'torpedo' (with small black spots); the other two, with three black stripes characteristic of the painter, are probably a type of flounder. On the rim a wave pattern.
