BLACK FIGURED OLPE, 6TH CENTURY B.C.
Nice black figured olpe decorated with a dancing maenad surrounded by two satyrs. The details are treated with incision and with added red and white. Unfortunately, the flesh of the maenad, originally in added white, has disappeared.
A dotted frieze decorates the top of the scene and a purple line represents the ground. The rest of the vase is varnished black.
