8 cm. Checklist no. 165. The Ambrosios Painter offers us a glimpse of the palaestra (the ancient Greek athletic field) within a simple reserved border in the tondo of this kylix. A young athlete has propped his javelins against the wall behind him, where his discus bag also hangs; and he stands to the left pouring oil from an 42 aryballos into his open left palm. He will rub the oil on his nude body and then scrape it away with a strigil to clean off the dirt of the practice field. The exterior of the cup is undecorated.

Two pairs, each a youth and a man, appear on either side of the exterior, though here the youths are seated while men stand. At the right end of each side stands a third man. Lyres hang on the wall behind the figures along with string bags for knucklebones, and sponges and aryballoi used in athletics.
