Colorless glass with small bubbles; blown, reverse cold painted. Shallow, thin-walled bowl; short, slightly flaring rim rounded by reheating; side curves in to convex bottom. Painted on exterior with Judgment of Paris in black, white and shades of grey, yellow, brown and violet, on red background. Paris, seated on left, in Oriental attire, with shepherd's crook in right hand, stares at spectator, as though in indecision. At his side stands Hermes (identified in Greek capitals, Ermes), naked except for chlamys fastened on right shoulder and draped over left arm. On his head are small wings, with a lotus leaf or similar motif between them; behind his head is nimbus. He turns to Paris, indicating Goddesses with herald's staff. Next to Hermes, in center of scene, stands Aphrodite, lower part of body only clad in chiton, with mantle behind her back. One end of mantle is draped around left forearm, other end held by nude Eros (identified as Pothos, Desire), who flies towards her. Beside Aphrodite sits Hear, fully dressed in peplos with belted overfold, mantle on back of head, diadem and shoes, holding scepter. Hear turns away from Aphrodite and Paris. On right of scene is Athena, seated with one foot placed on rock, wearing peplos with overfold, helmet and shoes, holding spear in right hand and resting left hand on shield with central gorgoneion. In foreground, which depicts stream or pool and meadow, on lower slopes of Mount Ida, two sheep from Paris' flock.
