The color of the figure scene and ornament is fired red. A maiden in right profile holds an object (now missing) in both hands. The color of her garment has faded, leaving only her nude body. She stands before a grave stele wrapped with taenia and surmounting a stepped base. On the other side of the stele is a youth, standing frontally, his head in left profile. He wears a himation, which is draped over his body, exposing his right shoulder and breast.
The upper surface of the lip is reserved. On the neck is a tongue pattern between single lines. On the shoulder is a scheme of three five-petal palmettes entwined in volutes. The central palmette is inverted, while the other two are turned toward the handle. Above the picture is a meander in groups of three, alternately leftward and rightward, separated by saltire squares. Two lines run above and beneath. There is a single line under the picture.
