Kylix Depicting Men Bending Drinking from Kylix


Description Conservation Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This red-figure kylix depicts a wreathed symposiast in the tondo. He bends over to the right looking into a cup which he holds delicately by the foot in his right hand; the end of his beard disappears into the vessel. In the left he holds an oinochoe which rests on the ground. The pose of the figure is innovative, and although komasts are frequently depicted in the tondo of archaic Attic red-figure cups, none share this pose. This is the only vase signed by Paidikos as painter.
