Decoration Description: A continouous figural frieze decorates the outside of the pyxis. Between two columns stands a woman, reaching to (kneeling before?) an altar; a wreath is hung on the wall behind her. In the next intercolumniation flies a winged Nike, with a wreath, toward a low altar. A woman, swathed in a himation, is seated profile to the right on a stool, between the last column and a door, to the right of which runs another woman, shown in 3/4-view to the right, toward a basin, although she turns her head profile to the left, toward the door.
