Shoulder Lekythos with Satyr and Wine Skin


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This red-figure shoulder lekythos depicts a satyr. Wreathed, he faces right holding out a wineskin in his left hand and a drinking horn in his right. The position of his feet, left leg out straight, right bent under, suggests either that he has just halted his forward progress, or he is dancing.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1924, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Inscriptions [Transcription] Horizontal above the satyr's left arm: KAΛOΣ; [Transcription] Vertically behind the satyr: HO ΠAIΣ (?)
Credit Acquired by Henry Walters, 1924
