From the LC Group. Standing on a high baluster foot with black tongues on the shoulder and a peaked lid and a narrow baluster knob, the body of the vessel is decorated with a large head of a maenad, clutching a thyrsos before her, on one side. Further along the bowl there is a draped female moving to the right while looking back, holding a cista and fillets in each extended hand. To the left of her there is a nude winged Eros flying to the right holding a cista and fillets. The final side shows a different type of scene of a shield, a double-door, and a tympanum.

A label on the underside of the foot, reading: "acheté à Rhodes, 1905." Jean Audy (1906-1962), Paris. Archéologie, Millon & Associés, Paris, 21 May 2008, lot 287

The L.C. Group is named for painters of late Attic calyx-kraters.
