Cf. the British Museum, museum number 1864,1007.294, for similar, in Walters, H.B., Forsdyke, E.J., Smith, C.H., Catalogue of Vases in the British Museum, London, 1893-1895, cat.B441; see another similar example of such Attic black-figure deep-bowled kylix in the Monash University Museum, inv. No.10.26180; for the type of object, see J. Paul Getty Museum, 85.AE.25; British Museum, London, 1852,0707.14, 1864,1007.1526, 1864,1007.1528, 1864,1007.1534, 1906,1215.1, 1906,1215.4, 1952,0204.17; examples with long neck, see Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 06.1021.157, 98.8.16 and Archaeological Museum, Bologna, G597.

FOOTNOTES:
The kylix is pertinent to the style of the Haimon painter, who flourished in the first half of 5th century B.C., especially in the rendering of the facial features, and feet. The imagery on the exterior of kylikes used in the symposia varied a lot.
