The clay red-figure vessel comes from Kerch — a Greek colony situated on the Black Sea. It was made in the so-called Kerch style and is dated back to the 4th century BC.
The edge of the vessel is trimmed with an ornament of an egg-and-dart encircling the figural scene. On the one side there is Arimaspian fighting with a gryphon. The warrior is dressed in a tunic and trousers — anaxyrides. In his left hand he is carrying an Asian shield; in his right hand, raised above his head, he is probably holding a sword with which he is about to hit the animal. Under the stomach of the gryphon there is another shield of the same type, decorated with a rosette of dots. Between the legs of the warrior there is a band. Further to the right there is a kind of a pedestal resting on the base. The body of the gryphon and the shield of the warrior are painted white with retouches done in the form of yellow strokes. On the other side, there are two standing epheboi wearing himatia. One of them (on the right) is holding a large ball.
