Interior, man and woman reclining Exterior, obverse and reverse, men and youths
The integration of mortal and immortal participants in a single scene appears throughout Greek vase-painting. Here, on the exterior, a group of older and younger men is joined by a youth with a cock and a bearded man with a scepter who strongly suggest Ganymede and Zeus. To the right, a boy with a lyre raises his right hand in surprise and flees.
