Many details of this aryballos are marked by fine incision lines and in added red and white pigment. Two painted cocks flank a palmette-lotus complex on a globular body, and a walking goose seen depicted beneath the handle. Ornamental motifs fill the rest of the plane, with rosettes and radiating tongues placed around the orifice, on the shoulder and underneath the base.
