Rim fragment of a red-figured kylix in two pieces. On the exterior, what was formerly thought to be a head of Athena, is now identified as an amazon. She wears a helmet and faces right. The interior is black with two reserved lines on the rim. These fragments join with pieces of a cup in the J. Paul Getty Museum (79.AE.127 [BAPD 13715]). The Bryn Mawr fragment with the head of an amazon belongs to a larger Amazonomachy scene on Side A. Side B is a scene with revelers and the tondo depicts a woman dancing with krotala (clappers) and a lyre. The cup is attributed to the Attic vase painter, Oltos, who was active c.525-500 BCE.
