Date Description: The "Clinic Painter" is a follower of Makron.
On the shoulder two nude Erotes, with mature bodies and taeniae in their light-colored hair, fly towards each other.
The main scene depicts individuals in a medical clinic. A youth wearing a himation, seated on a klismos, reaches to the arm of a bearded man, wearing a chlamys over his left arm, who leans on a staff in his left hand, and stretches his right hand towards the youth; a shallow bronze bowl sits below him. A seated man, wearing a himation around his lower body, sits on a diphros, profile to left, rests his left hand on his lap, and holds a staff in his upraised right hand. A bearded man, standing 3/4-view to the left, wearing a himation, raises his right hand in a speaking gesture. Another bearded man, standing 3/4-view to the right, wearing a himation, and leaning profile to the right, on a staff under his left arm, looks down at a nude, bearded dwarf. The dwarf stands in a near frontal view, with his head profile to the left, and a hare draped over his left shoulder. A light-haired, bearded man, wearing a short himation, advances to the right, with his left hand on his hip (?), and his right hand on a staff.
