Terracotta kylix (drinking cup)

Attributed to Douris

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 157

Interior, two women with their garments
Exterior, obverse and reverse, women and youths

Though later in date, this scene has the same directness and charm as that of the woman at a laver (1986.322.1). Here, two women, nude except for the fillets binding their hair, put aside their carefully rolled-up garments. The exterior shows women and youths in conversation. It is difficult, and perhaps unnecessary, to characterize the situation precisely. Douris liked to depict such encounters.
