The cup is interesting by virtue not of its subject but of the drawing and the form. The drawing does not have the precision or detail typical of cups of this type. The naked ephebes, running with long strides and waving their arms, are heavy and clumsy with small heads, long noses and pointed chins, small triangular torsos and heavy thighs. The form is very curious: the bowl is deep and wide and the foot short and vigorous.
