Terracotta kylix (drinking cup)

Attributed to a painter of the Thorvaldsen Group

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 157

Interior, warrior and boy
Exterior, athletes

The interior presents a particularly fine but also sober depiction of a warrior; he grasps a spear and is accompanied by a boy, probably an attendant. The artist carefully articulated the elements of the warrior's dress and armor; by putting the helmet to one side, he could render the pensive, downcast face. The exterior shows more animated scenes—boxing, wrestling, and preparing to throw the diskos.
