The iconography of this vase is canonical for a loutrophoros. Of interest is the subsidiary frieze of horsemen. Horses play a significant role in funerary iconography, in the form of war chariots, racing chariots, or riders. The reference will be to the status of the deceased, for ownership of a horse in ancient Athens was a mark of wealth and privilege.
