Terracotta calyx-krater (bowl for mixing wine and water)
2nd half of 5th century B.C.
H. 12 in. (30.5 cm)
Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Jonathan P. Rosen, 1991
Obverse and reverse, Dionysos and Ariadne reclining among satyrs and maenads
The degree of characterization, particularly in their movements, suggests that the satyrs are performers or derived from actors in a play.
