Side A: Standing woman. Adorned with a v-shaped necklace, she stands, facing front, dressed in a long transparent Ionic style chiton with loose elbow sleeves and overhang (kolpos), broken up into many folds. Her hair is bunched up on either side of her head and gathered in a fillet. With her right hand she holds up a long tasseled fillet and grasps the same in her left hand. Her feet are shown in profile, pointing to the right where there is a basket full of wool or fillets, indicated in red. Side B: Youth. Draped in a himation which comes up over the back of his head, he faces left. He stretches out his right hand to the basket on Side A, and holds a branch. With his left, he leans on a staff, the top of which is concealed in the folds of his garment. Since the alabastron is a funerary offering, perhaps the woman is bringing the fillets to decorate a tomb as on
High, flaring mouth, wide bottom, two small pierced lugs for suspension.
