Obverse, Nike (the personification of victory) holding a fillet Reverse, youth leaning on staff
The subject of Nike crowning a youth occurs often on Greek vases. It is interesting to reflect that when Nike and the victor appear in a scene together, the action is understood as occurring before us. When the two protagonists are shown on opposite sides of a vase, as here, an interval of time is added between what we see and what we know will happen.
