APC Image: AK 0991Red-figured sherds. Left top and bottom: Two fragments of a pointed (?) amphora, with the start of the handle at the right. A, Athena; B, maenads. Top piece, at the left is a maenad to right, looking back. She wears a sleeved chiton with a himation loooped over her right shoulder; in her right is a thyrsos. The head of the other figure extends up to the handle. From her aegis and her spear she must be Athena. Bottom piece gives the folds of the himation of a third figure facing to right. Ca. 500 B.C. The style compared y Beazley to that of the plastic vase, London E 875. Center Top: Fragment of a closed vase, perhaps an amphora. The shoulders and the lower part of the head of a flute-player facing to right, with parts of his hands, holding the pipes. The fingers to the left hand are not drawn. Late. Center Bottom: Fragment of the neck and the beginning of the handle of a loutrophoros. A draped woman standing to right: the back of her head and the line of her right shoulder and arm wrapped in an himation. Ca. 440 B.C.(?) Right Top: Fragment of oinochoe type VIII(?). A lad going to the right. Ca. 430 B.C.(?). Right Bottom: Fragment of stand of "sosian" type with double grooves on the outer-edge and the start of the foot on the underside. A figure to right holding a vine-wreath, with a basket on the ground nearby. Only left foot of the figure remains, as well as the lower tip of the skirt of the chiton and two fingers of the hand holding the stem of the vine. On the ground, beside the foot is the kalathos. The work is of unbelievable finess and delicacy, and the vase once was signed: the two letters of the inscription are the end of the signature, EN. Ca. 510 B.C.
