Agora Object: P 9275
Collection:   Agora
Type:   Object
Name:   P 9275
Inventory Number:   P 9275
Section Number:   Φ 97
Title:   Black Figure Stand: Inscribed
Category:   Pottery
Description:   Mended from many pieces; most of the lip, about half the base and scattered fragments of the figured scenes missing. A cylindrical stand, open at top and bottom, with a rather concave profile and simple slightly projecting rim and base.
Interior: horizontal stripes, alternately black and reserved, varying from ca. 0.01 to 0.02 in width, widest towards the middle.
Exterior: above and below, black rosettes with white centers. The figured scene completely encircles the vase and is separated from the rosettes by two black lines.
Artemis, right, wearing a long himation, mounts a chariot drawn by four horses which stand beside a palm tree. In front of the horses and facing them stands Apollo in long chiton and himation, holding a seven-stringed lyre (strings incised) in his left hand and a flower in his raised right. Behind Apollo a young deer, left, stands under a second palm tree. The deer and Artemis are back to back.
In the field, nonsense inscriptions in glaze: above the backs of the horses, horizontally, Ο Ι Ε; between their legs, vertically, Ο Ρ Ε Ι Ο; between them and Apollo, vertically, Ο Ι Ε Ε Ο Γ [cf. AJA 33 (1929), pp. 361-362, all of which, however, belong to the mid-sixth century].
The added colors are well preserved. White is used for Artemis' flesh; for one of the horses and for decorations on the harness of another; for Apollo's wreath, the frame of his lyre, the visible lower part of his long chiton, and the dots along its lower border; for the throat, chest, belly stripe and tail of the deer; for the hearts of the two palm trees; and for the dots of the rosettes in the borders above and below. Red is used for Artemis' fillet; for crosses and folds on her himation; for four bosses on the chariot car; for the reins; for the tails and manes of the white horse and the nearest black one; for some of the harness; for dots and folds on Apollo's himation; and for the outer edge of the lip of the pot.
