Terracotta kylix (drinking cup)

Attributed to the Euergides Painter

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

Interior, youth with keras (drinking horn)
Exterior, obverse, panther attacking fawn, and youth;
reverse, athletes and trainer

The inclusion of the panther felling a fawn in the iconography of this cup is noteworthy; the youth running away makes the animal encounter very immediate. The representation may have something to do with prowess and cowardice.
