This elegant amphora, designed for the storage
of liquids, has a wide flaring lip and a narrow
neck and base. The obverse depicts a dancing
draped female clutching a mirror in her left hand
and a tambourine with attached fillet in her right.
A fillet also hangs from her left arm and a further
example is displayed in the field. The figure is
flanked on either side by a palmette complex. A
band of laurel and bead-and-reed motifs run
around the lip, followed by palmettes on the
neck, tongues on the shoulder and a wave motif
beneath the figure. The reverse depicts a female
head in profile wearing a sakkos.
