REDMG:2004.95.1 Interior of mouth black; lip reserved; exterior of mouth black, as is handle (repainted); vertical bars at the bottom of the neck; lotus-dot chain on the shoulder; Dionysos riding on a mule, between two satyrs, one holding a maenad. Below the figural scene is a black band, a reserved band, and then a black zone extending to the foot, which is black on the top, reserved on the convex surface and the underside. Figural scene: A nude satyr (in a crouching pose) runs profile to the right, holding a maenad on his shoulder; the maenad, who turns her head profile to the left, stretches her arms to either side and holds a rhyton in her slightly upraised left hand. She wears a kekryphylon (red), necklace (incised) and himation. Dionysos, seated on a mule, rides profile to the right; the god, wearing a red and blck ivy wreath and a himation decorated with red dots, holds a red keras (horn of plenty) from which emerge ivy tendrils that serve as a backdrop for the entire scene. Leading the mule (through use of a white rein, of which a ghost remains) is another nude satyr, running profile to the right, while he turns his head profile to the left. Other details include red on the beards and tails of satyrs and a red fringe for the foremost satyr. Incision is used extensively for anatomy and drapery. An unusual effect is created through the use of incision for the forearm of the leading satyr, which he lays across his torso, which is not incised save for two small circles to indicate his nipples. 2004.99.0868.jpg
