The body is a truncated “breast” (mastos), with flat base and everted rim. In cursory style Herakles is twice shown grappling with the Nemean Lion, witnessed by his crouching nephew, Iolaos, and a seated woman. The hero’s club, bow, and quiver are hung above, amid vines, but also held by Iolaos. Attributed to the manner of the Haimon Painter, one of the main black-figure artists of black-figure mastoid cups (and lekythoi) in the early 5th century BCE.
