Hydria

c.500 BC

Attic Greek

1. On the shoulder: Dionysos seated on an okladias to right, with long pointed beard and long hair, ivy-wreath, in a long embroidered himation; in left hand a keras. In the field are vine-branches with clusters of grapes. On either side is a large eye, black with purple pupil and a white ring.
2. On the body: Two Sirens confronted, with long tresses and necklaces, the one on the right wearing a sphendone (hairband); their bodies are covered with large eyes, as above, but only outlined in black. In the field, vine-branches with clusters of grapes.
