From Gela. Ann. Rep. 1913, p. 92. Beazley, V.A., p. 157. Att. V., p. 355, no. 2. The shape drawn in Caskey, G.G.V., p. 141, no. 93.

Two youthful athletes in conversation. The one at the left stands in profile with his left leg advanced and his hands clasped. The other is in front view with his head turned towards his comrade and stretching out his right hand holding a strigil. His lower eyelashes are indicated, and teeth are shown between his parted lips. The dog between them is looking up at the second youth, perhaps waiting for scrapings from the strigil, like the dog on the Brygan kylix above, no. 28, Pl. X (Boston 01.8038). Hanging in the field behind the left-hand youth, an aryballos (seen from the top) and a sponge, hanging by a string from a thong. Above the youths' heads, ΑΛΚΙΜΑΧΟΣ ΚΑΛΟΣ. On the name Alkimachos see i no. 49, p. 44 (Boston 13.202).
