Pottery: red-figured rhyton in the form of an eagle’s head. The one-handled cup, which has a band of tongue pattern round the lip, and a band of black glaze, terminates in the head of an eagle; the beak is black glaze, the head covered with black lines, imitating feathers, on a red ground. The space around the eye is left in the natural colour of the clay, with thin white lines radiating from the centre; the eye itself is modelled and painted, the pupil and outlines black, the rest white. From the end of the beak upwards a series of brush-marks are drawn in white on the black glaze, as if to indicate the stains of food.
