Fragments of a terracotta kylix (drinking cup)
Attributed to Euthymides
ca. 515 B.C.
Terracotta; red-figure, coral red
Gift of Dietrich von Bothmer, 1977
Exterior, gods in Olympos
Though fragmentary, the cup is exceedingly significant. It is signed by Euthymides as both painter and potter. None of the figural decoration of the interior is preserved, but the surviving pieces show that it was covered with a coral red slip. The subject of the exterior may have been the birth of Athena.The other fragments belonging to the cup are 1982.386 and L.1983.49, lent by the Monumenti, Musei e Gallerie Pontificie.
