ca. 410–380 B.C.
Greek, South Italian, Lucanian
Terracotta; red-figure
width 11 1/8in. (28.2cm)
Credit Line:
Gift of Paul E. Manheim, 1969
Accession Number:
On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 161
Interior, satyr leaning on a pillar
Exterior, obverse, woman holding a wreath; reverse, nude youth by a pillar

This cup was painted by a follower of the Amykos Painter and may represent the minor mode of the Creusa Painter, one of the leaders of the second generation of Lucanian artists. The pillars, nude youth, and wreath suggest an athletic context. The satyr appears relaxed but commanding.
