Fifty-four fragments of a nearly complete komast cup. The narrow offset lip is decorated with a net pattern, framed by black lines, one at rim and one at offset. On each side of the cup, two komasts, the left one naked and the right one padded, dance between palmettes and tendrils. One rosette decorates the field behind the left komast, on both sides of the cup. Purple added for the hair, tunic, buttock pads, and alternating petals of the rosette and palmette. Three horizontal lines make a border below the figures, and sixty-seven short rays spread above the black foot and into the lower body. The underside of the foot is reserved with a single black circle and dot in the center. The handles are glazed outside and reserved within. Occasional spots and drips of glaze attest to a somewhat sloppy painter, and a gouge on the upper body and lip was painted over as if to hide the defect. The vase for which the Vienna Komast Painter is named is almost identical to Att 46.
H. 0.072; W. with handles 0.215; diam. at rim 0.145; Th. 0.003.
