From Trendall p. 354,"Urbana-Champaign, University of Illinois, World Heritage Museum 89.9.22 Pl. XCIII,1. (a) Above-youth wearing petasos, woman in quadriga, draped woman; below-two women at a fountain-house, in which is an M-handled hydria and a cross bar torch; I., seated with a fan and phiale, r., bending forward with mirror and a handled cista, (b) two women at a stele, l. with mirror and bunch of grapes, r., with "one-leaf "phiale and fillet and a bunch of grapes. Shoulder: white female head in three quarter view to r. in floral setting. Between the two registers on the obverse is a band of animals-cf. Berlin F3239-40 (RVAp.1. p. 490, nos. 18/22-3), comparable to the Tarentine gilded terracotta appliques (R.Lullies, Vergoldete Terrakotta-Appliken). On the neck of the obverse in a panel just below the mouth is a r.f. head of a Nike, with the "trident" hair typical of the later vases of the White Saccos Group.
