Wall fragment. Edge of reserved panel with border of ivy. At right, a female arm, painted in white, and small part of her black belt with three horizontal incised lines. Unglazed on interior. The ivy border is typical of the Leagros Group.
D. von Bothmer (personal communication) suggests that the arm may belong to Athena mounting a chariot, because it is typical to crowd her elbow into the border. For a male god in a similar pose, see ABV 363,no.45; ABFV fig. 206 (hydria of Leagros Group, Vatican Mus. 422).Cf. Development 174-80
