Three of four stags on this cup each appear to have just one ear.
A siren, a mythological woman-headed bird, stands at the center of the figural band on either side of this cup, her wings spread and head turned to the left. Flanking her are a pair of grazing stags, with a panther on either side facing inward. Inside, the cup is sparsely decorated, its reserved tondo holding a dot within concentric circles.
