Description
The obverse of this wide-mouthed bell krater depicts a naked satyr wearing a wreath and standing over a laver. The satyr’s left arm and right foot rest on the laver whilst a bird balances on his right hand. The figure is framed by a palmette design on both sides. A band of laurel and bead-and-reed motifs encircles the area beneath the rim whilst a wave motif adorns the lower band.

The reverse depicts a winged Eros wearing a wreath upon his head and carrying a tambourine in his outstretched right hand. This hand runs at a parallel with the right leg. The left hand, which grasps a fillet, also forms a parallel with the right arm so that the figure is rendered in an ‘X’ shaped composition. - (AM.0032)
