Terracotta askos (flask with a handle over the top)
Compared to the Mignot Painter
The askos itself is in the form of a sea creature, Scylla, its snake-like body forming the handle on top. On the body is a hound coursing a hare, with the head of a woman above. On the front of the vase is a head of Nike; on the back, a palmette.
Scylla askoi are late Apulian creations most notable for the treatment of the shape and the apparently unrelated decoration.
