The Water Jar has various designs on it. Herakles, a Greek hero, is shown battling Lernean Hydra, all while a large crab pinches his foot. His ally, Lolaos, is on the other side of him, cutting monsters heads off qith a short, curved sword. The handle has two sphinxes on it, and floral designs can be seen covering the rest of the vase. The Jar is said to possibly have two creators, and is unique because it uses floral designs, which was a technique that was not known in Greek vase-painting.
