Lot Essay

The obverse shows a departure scene with a youthful warrior and a woman. The warrior wears a crested helmet, a breast-plate, an ornamented shoulder-guard, and a himation. He holds a spear in his left hand and turns his head to the right, looking at the woman who holds a phiale in her outstretched right hand. The woman wears a long pleated chiton beneath a himation, her hair bound in a fillet. A similarly clad woman adorns the other side. A band of meander encircles below the scenes.
