Side A: a nude young Dionysos with a garment thrown over his left shoulder and arm holds a thyrsos and wears a red wreath in his hair. He extends his right hand to a woman, most probably a maenad, offering him a kylix. Behind her stands the burlesque figure of a silen who leans on his staff. Side B: three draped youths, drawn in a sketchy and untidy fashion. Below each group is a band of stopped meander and saltire crosses in panels. At the lip, a running border of laurel-wreath pattern is seen. At the juncture of the handles is a short panel of black tongues.
Typical inverted bell with loop handles placed high on the body and curving upwards.
