Wine Jug with Boy Riding Goat


Description Provenance Credit
Description This miniature "oinochoe," known more particularly as a "chous" ("choes" in the plural), dates to the last decade of the 5th century BC. As is most often the fashion with small "choes," this example features scenes of children, their accoutrements, and their play. This "chous" depicts two boys. One rides on a goat; the other stands nearby holding out a bunch of grapes to his companion. Both boys are crowned, and the standing boy, who also holds a toy cart on one shoulder, is adorned with protective amulets.
Provenance Seligmann (?); Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1909, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Credit Acquired by Henry Walters, 1909
