The vase is of particular interest for its handles, identified as being of Chalcidian type. This is the earliest preserved example in Corinthian pottery and is roughly contemporary with the earliest Attic example, attributed to Sophilos and exhibited on the main floor in the Belfer Court (1977.11.2).
