The vessel is a tall bowl with handles on either side. It is painted black, and in red there are two figures. They have white hair and beards so they may be elderly. They face each other with expressions of surprise as another mans head is either tossed or falls from above. Both men wear robes, but the penis of the man at the left is exposed under his clothing. Nearby there is an open doorway decorated with geometric designs. There are geometric motifs and columns bordering the scene.
