Obverse, Hermes and woman between men Reverse, Hermes and warrior between men Under the handles, horseman and Bellerophon on Pegasos
The scenes on the body are certainly connected. Hermes brings together a warrior and a woman, who, as indicated by the cloak that covers her head, is married. The aggressive posture of the warrior suggests that he is Menelaos reclaiming his wife, Helen, at Troy. The horseman and bird under one handle may allude to Troilos, the Trojan prince ambushed by Achilles.
