Interior (black-figure), two birds and snake Exterior (red-figure), obverse, between eyes, Pegasos; reverse, between eyes, nose and the name Psiax
Several works by Psiax have inscriptions, and at least two identify him as painter. This is one of two cups on which hisname appears without a verb. Bilingual vases are particularly interesting because they juxtapose the old, black-figure, and the new, red-figure manner of decoration on the same piece.
