A black vessel with a wide mouth, slightly narrower neck, and a wide body, with a narrower foot. Two small handles protrude from the top of the body. Three-quarters of the body is covered with a processional scene, moving right, above a skinny banded design. The horses and figures of the procession are black, while the background is red. One of the figures, at center, wears a long white garment.
