Drinking vessel decorated with a female mask, probably a theatrical hetaira mask, and vine leaves, made in the workshops of Apulia in southern Italy, 340-320 BCE. The polychromatic decoration on the black varnish coating of the vase is a technique typical of the"Gnathian style", named after the site of Gnathia where many pottery pieces have been discovered.
