Description The amorous interactions of humans and immortals achieve a light-hearted, almost dance-like quality on this "hydria," or water-jug. Hermes, in the center, pursues a youth towards the right, with Eros floating above them. On the left, a satyr advances from below toward a maiden who attempts to flee.
