Description:

PA-3197: ANCIENT GREEK BELL KRATER - c. mid 4th Century BC.

Height: 11 1/4 inches Width: 12 1/2 inches

Magna Graecia (Apulia), c. 350-325 BC: A magnificent terracotta red-figure painted wine mixing bowl standing on a pedestal foot.

Side A depicts a maenad seated on a pile of rocks, holding a thyrsus and casket, facing a nude satyr, his foot resting on rocks and holding a situla and mirror.
