The cylindrical body stands on a disc-shaped base. The raised lips form a spout flanked by an animal head on each side. The neck is decorated with patterns of vertical lines. The D-shaped handle is connected to the shoulder : a palette decorates its base. Sitting in profile on the ground represented by points, an Eros adorns the shoulder. He is surrounded on both sides by palmettes. The wing of the shoulder is highlighted by an egg-and-dart frieze. Eros wears shoes, a pearl necklace strapped around his torso, two beaded ankle bracelets and a garter composed of a double strand of pearls . His hair, gathered in a bun, are also adorned with pearls. The god holds a tympanum with two bandages in his right hand and an alabastron in his left hand. The body of the vase is adorned with a twisting frieze of vine painted white leaves and incised stems.

Brown-red clay with black varnish, white pigments and incision. Intact. Polychromy well-preserved.
