Side A shows a standing athlete in profile, holding a discus in his hands; the arms are raised and outstretched and the left leg is placed forward. This representation illustrates the swinging movements which precede the throw.
Side B features a paidotribe or trainer; his right hand is resting on a pillar (= palaistra) and he is holding a staff in his left hand. He is draped in a himation with his right shoulder bared. The vase bears a graffito.
