Greece, Athens (Attic), ca. 5th century BCE. A wonderful wheel-thrown pottery oinochoe with a trefoil spout, an ample body, and an attached handle joining neck to shoulder. The red-figured scene depicts a satyr, nude save the grapevine wreath adorning his head, standing in profile, striding forward, holding a garland in on hand and reaching for a drinking horn with the other. Details such as his wreath, garland, and pubic hair are delineated in red and white fugitive paint. In addition to this iconography, the shoulder is handsomely decorated with a nice egg-and-dart motif. Size: 3.8″ W x 5.875″ H (9.7 cm x 14.9 cm)
Provenance: private Orange County, California, USA collection acquired before 2000
