Woman pushing girl on a swing, youth sitting on an altar, and Hermes
The Aiora and Anthesteria, Athenian festivals dedicated to Dionysos, god of wine, included girls swinging. The Hermaia, celebrating Hermes, the messenger god, featured athletes; the youth here holds a strigil (scraper), and Hermes himself stands by a column suggesting a sacred precinct. The Athenian festivals may have had Apulian counterparts.
