The Xenon Group refers to a variety of Apulian pottery identifiable by certain popular shapes, such as the kantharos, and by the decoration of the black-glazed surface with motifs in a matte pinkish color. The Dionysiac references here include the ivy tendril on the shoulder and the satyr heads under the handles.
