Terracotta kylix (drinking cup)

Signed by Epiktetos

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 157

Komast (reveler) with skyphos (deep drinking cup) and oinochoe (jug)

Among the very early red-figure artists who specialized in kylikes, Epiktetos was one of the most accomplished. The ease of execution, combined with the elegant simplicity of the shape and decoration, represents Greek vase-painting at its finest. It is certainly intentional that the skyphos is so much larger than the oinochoe and that it is balanced on his forearm.
