physical_description
Vase, Hyria, red earthenware, decorated in the black figure technique, with a panel on the front reserved in red and painted in black, purple and white, with incised outlines. The middle of the panel is painted with the subject of Athenè mounting a four-horse chariot, escorted by Dionysus, Apollo Kitharoedos, Artemis and Hermes. Above, on the shoulder, is a procession of armed warriors, with an archer, a woman, and a four-horse chariot, preceded by Hermes and Poseidon; below is Heracles killing the Nemean lion, with Iolaos on one side and Athenè on the other, flanked by other figures two of which are seated on folding chairs (ocladiai). The shoulder is edged with a band of meander pattern and on either side of the large panel is a double vertical band of palmettes alternating with lotus-buds. Round the lower part of the body is a row of pointed leaves. Figured in Gerhard, Auserlesene Griechische Vasenbilder, II. Theil, Tafel 138.
