Unknown

The J. Paul Getty Museum

The J. Paul Getty Museum
Los Angeles, United States

Reconstructed from fragments, with a large area missing at the front. A winged female figure (Athena? Iris?) runs to right with a spear. She carries a Boeotian shield with a tripod blazon, and her helmet crest overlaps the ivy band that runs around the neck of the vessel. From under the handle, a floral pattern, with palmettes and long-stemmed lotuses.
