Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Female heads and Eros figures are common features on the vases attributed to the Ascoli Satriano Painter. His real name is unknown, and he has been named after a northern Apulian town, where many of his vases have been found. Eros is depicted as a winged youth about to place a wreath as an offering on the "cippus" (pillar) in front of him.
