Attic black-glazed fineware oinochoe of red-orange clay with decoration on white-ground panel to the front. The handle and front lip of the trefoil mouth are not aligned properly. The handle is curved rather than a strap-handle. The decoration includes a white-ground panel on the shoulder/neck join with zig-zag and parallel lines. On the shoulder, a red reserved area with tongue pattern and palmettes. Below, on the central white field, a Dionysian procession moves left to right, with vertical zig-zags at either side of the field. From the left: a man, mostly lost wearing a small bonnet; a figure, possibly female, now mostly lost; a red-haired man with a beard, wearing a bonnet, looking upwards and carrying a large libation bowl; a flute-girl, wearing an olive fillet in her hair and bracelets at her wrists, plays the double-flute. Ahead of her is a garland or wreath, hanging from a wall.
