Douris utilized the inner and outer surfaces of this kylix for his art. A thick black band circumferences the painting on the inner surface of the cup. Then another decorative band with alternating geometric shapes borders the depiction of a bearded figure sitting at an altar on the left side, holding a drinking cup that a younger man fills with wine from a pitcher. The older man is thought to be one of the legendary kings of Athens, Kekrops.
On the exterior of the kylix, Douris paints two different scenes, separated by a swirling floral design around the handles. On one side, two bearded men on the left stand facing each other, holing a staff in one arm and resting the other arm across the chest. In the center is a large winged figure that lunges toward the right, reaching out to take hold of a smaller and younger boy figure. Next to the youth stands another bearded man with a staff in one arm while he looks toward the left. On the opposite side of the exterior, one bearded man stands on the left with a staff in hand facing inward at broad, bearded figure flanked by two younger, nude males.
All of the figures are the color red,
