Very fine broad-shouldered amphoriskos tapering to a spreading foot, twin handles from shoulder to neck
The reserved band on the shoulder framed by dilute lines and decorated with an ivy wreath with alternating red and black leaves.
This amphoriskos copies large Attic oil jars and shows the same SOS marking on the neck as some of them.
