On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

Obverse, satyrs treading grapes in the presence of Dionysos
Reverse, satyrs and maenad

This scene is another in which satyrs perform human tasks; here is one for which they are particularly qualified. The representation is significant as an illustration of the equipment that was used in ancient Attica.
