Stamnos with Eos and Two Youths


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description His lyre tumbling to the ground, the youth Tithonus flees the amorous goddess Eos. She grabs his neck while fingering her mantle in the traditional gesture of a demure bride. This theme was a popular subject for red-figure vessels from the early to mid 5th century BC. This "stamnos" (wine container) belongs to a class of vessels which has a low foot in the form of a ring. There are seven known "stamnoi" of this type. All have the same size and proportions and were probably fashioned by the same potter.
