Exterior side A: Eight nude beardless youths appear to be engaged in battle. From the left is a helmeted boy wearing a tunic pulled down to his waist. He is placing a trumpet to his lips. Another figure, who is nude except for his greaves and raised helmet, holds a spear and a shield. He is followed by another who is attired in the same way, rushing aggressively to the right. A fallen boy lies at his feet with his helmet raised, but he still clings to his shield and spear. Another youth, naked except for his helmet and greaves, rushes with his spear and shield aggressively to the left. Another follows in the same way. Another fallen warrior slumps to the right, his helmet coming off. The last figure on the right is a nude archer, wearing greaves and a helmet. The Greek name "Panphaios" inscribed above the image (PANPHAIOS). Exterior side B: Youths arm themselves for battle. From the left is a bearded man holding a staff in coversation with a nude boy, who gestures to him. He holds a spear and a shield. A woman carries a shield which has a cat as its shield device, and a helmet to a boy who is putting on his greaves. Another woman moves to the left, carrying a spear, and a fully armed soldier follows her. His shield device is a frontal face of a satyr. A bird flies by above a woman who sits in a chair, wrapped in drapery and holding a helmet. Above the image the Greek inscription "made (it)" (EPOIESEN).
