Interior: A reclining male figure, draped from the waist down, leans against a doubled-over bolster. With the forefinger of his outstretched right hand, he holds a kylix by the handle. A wreath, now so worn as to be all but invisible, dangles from his left hand. Hanging on the wall at his feet is a flute case of spotted animal skin. The figure is a participant in a Greek symposium (drinking party) and is shown playing the popular game of kottabos, in which contestants attempted to hit various types of targets with wine dregs flung from the bottom of a kylix. A kalos inscription reading "HO PAIS KALOS" ("the boy is beautiful") appears above the head and knee of the symposiast.
Exterior: Reserved except for black glaze on the base ring and in a wide circular band in the center of the plate.
