A youth seated in left profile turns his head to gaze behind him. He is nude except for a mantle draped across his waist and legs. He holds a staff in his outstretched right hand. Behind him is draped standing maiden, turning to her left. In front of her is Dionysos, seated three-quarters to his right with a nude torso, a mantle draped over his legs. In his right hand he holds a thyrsos. He turns his head to glance back at a standing female in left profile who holds a thyrsos in her right hand. There is extensive use of added white.
Tongues surround the lower half of the neck; a band of wave pattern is on the shoulder above the reserved band. The figures stand on a white band enclosed by black bounding lines. Beneath is a band of wave pattern beneath a dotted white line, then white and black bands. At the back is a seventeen-petal palmette amid scrolls.
