Side A: Nike watering a bull in front of a tripod. At left, a winged Nike, wearing a peplos with patterned border and a fillet around her head, pours water from a hydria into a basin on a low tripod. A bull bends to drink from the basin, his horns decorated for sacrifice with a taenia. To right a female figure, wearing a peplos and fillet, holds a long white fillet, which she is winding or unwinding from a tall, elaborately decorated tripod that stands behind the bull. The right-hand figure may be an unwinged Nike or represent one of the tribes who won a tripod as a prize in the Greater Dionysia. Side B: a bearded man wearing a mantle and holding a staff or sceptre, between two female figures wearing sleeved chitons and mantles. The women hold their hands up towards the man in greeting. The left-hand woman wears four white flowers in her hair, the right-hand wears a sakkos.
Side A: between winged Nike and tripod,
