Mold-made bowls from Boeotia are often decorated in relief with Homeric themes and subjects drawn from Classical Greek tragedy. Although this bowl depicts a bucolic Dionysiac revel, its shape and the egg and dart wreath surrounding its foot suggest it too was made in Boeotia. The relief on the base is badly worn, but it could portray either Dionysos or a satyr crowned with grape leaves, as either would make a suitable counterpart to the primary figural scene on the bowl.
