RED-FIGURED ARYBALLISQUE LEKYTHOS Decorated... - Lot 47 - Lucien Paris
RED-FIGURED ARYBALLISQUE LEKYTHOS Decorated with a warrior's departure scene. The warrior takes center stage, in profile, facing left. He is wearing a chlamydia (double black folds at the bottom) and a pack on his back. He holds a spear with his left arm bent backwards, and extends his right arm towards a woman. Turning to the right, she offers him a phial she has just filled with an oenochoe she is holding in her left hand. She's wearing a long chiton tied at the waist. Her hair is held back in a bun by a headband and separated from the varnish on her belly by a reserved area. Between them, resting on the ground, is a shield, topped by an Athenian helmet with crest, which the warrior seems to be pointing at. To the right of the scene stands a middle-aged man, in profile to the left, wearing a beard, draped in a himation and resting his right hand on a staff. The decoration rests on a frieze of ovals symmetrical to the one at the junction of the body and neck. Under the handle and on either side of the handle, a large palmette decoration unfolds: a vertical palmette under the handle frames a lotus with scrolls at the bottom. It is linked by scrollwork to two vertical palmettes on either side of the handle, which in turn are linked to a smaller palmette facing downwards. Upper and lower scrolls emanate from the lines connecting the palmettes, framing a rhombus. Black glazed clay. Greek art, Attica, c. 440-430. Manner of the Painter of Achilles (J.H. Oakley).
