Below the ivy tendril adorned neck on Side A is a standing male youth, nude save the wreath adorning his coiffure and laced foot coverings. He holds a large patera in his left hand, a cloak over that arm, and a leafy frond in his right hand. On the right is a female maenad, dressed in a flowing long girt chiton, an elaborate saccos, and beaded necklaces whose head is turned to face the young male, though her body is motioning away from him toward the right. She holds a tympanum in her right hand and a cask in her left. Side B features two male draped figures facing one another and leaning on walking sticks. Both figural programs are framed by a fretted band above, double dotted bands to either side, and a bold Greek key/meander below with a central element featuring a quartered square with a dot housed in each quadrant. Size: 14.125" W handlespan x 16" H (35.9 cm x 40.6 cm) Adding to the decorative program is a wave pattern adorning the flattened rim and stylized palmettes on the upper extended sections of the twin, double handles. A column krater vessel is named for its column-like handles. This form first emerged as a Corinthian form during the late seventh century BCE. It was also popular among Attic potters from the first half of the 6th century to the third quarter of the 5th century BCE - and was later admired by Apulian potters of the 4th century BCE.
