Description:
Etruscan Red-figured Stamnos. A) Athena advances to left, her right arm extended in front of her, her left holding a spear upright. She wears a helmet with plume and has a Gorgoneion on her breast. Part of shield visible against right leg. By looking at the area slantwise one can see that Athena is holding out some kind of floral spray in her right hand. B) A female figure, seated, facing left. She holds up an object (mirror?) in front of her in right hand. In her left hand she holds a thyrsus. In front of her is a small dappled faun. Ariadne (?). The suggestion that the female figure on this side is Ariadne was made by Emeline Hill Richardson. A palmette under each handle. Tall foliage with configuration like question marks beside each figure. Intact. Somewhat metallic black glaze. Much added white used: for female flesh, for faun, etc.
