Much of the glaze has flaked off on the exterior. The interior is somewhat worn, with fine scratches from previous mending. Fourteen ancient mend holes were counted during restoration of the kylix; most can be seen on either the interior and exterior.
Interior: a youth carrying a piglet and a basket. A slender youth is walking to the right, carrying a piglet to be sacrificed. He is wearing a wreath in his hair and a short garment around his waist which falls to about mid-thigh. The kicking piglet is dangling from the his right hand, while in his outstretched left hand he carries a kanoun, each of its 'horns' decorated with a branch. The youth walks with his left foot forward, his knees slightly bent and his head bowed. There are inscriptions below the basket and between the youth and the piglet.
Type B kylix.
The inscription to the right of the youth reads:
The kylix was originally part of the Coleman Collection. It was purchased by Davis and Harvey, sale no. 212, and was given to the University Museum by Mrs. Phoebe A. Hearst.
