The surface of the vase is chipped and badly worn, and most of the red and white paints have flaked away.
Side A, body: doe mauled by panthers. A doe, standing to the right, is being attacked by panthers on either side. The panther on the left has attacked its hindquarters, biting and holding on with its front paws. The panther on the right attacks the front, grabbing the doe around the chest and biting at the back of its neck; shoulder: grazing rams and a waterbird. The waterbird, its wings spread, stands in the center facing left, its head turned to face forward. A ram stands to either side, head to the ground. Side B, body: sphinxes to either side of a palmette floral complex. Seated sphinxes with curled wings flank a large palmette floral complex with lotus bud tendrils; shoulder: grazing goats and an owl. The owl stands in the center facing right, its head turned to face forward. It is flanked by bearded goats standing with heads to the ground.
The amphora was collected by Tewfik Pasha, Khedive of Egypt. After his death it was sold in Constantinople. In 1896 it was purchased by H.V. Hilprecht for the University Museum, Philadelphia.
