Two women presenting gifts to two youths
The Amykos Painter was a prolific artist who invented a repertoire of stock figural types for his less ambitious works. The youths here are characterized as athletes by their nudity, the gifts of a fillet and wreath, and the strigil (scraper) held by the rightmost figure.
