Scene is thought to have been adapted, in modern times, from the Athenian red figure kylix by the Sosias Painter, Berlin 2278, ARV2, no. 1. The exterior scenes show Herakles entering Olympus. See, for an illustration, Pfuhl, MuZ, fig. 418. Also Furtwaengler-Reichhold, pl. 123. Engraved with marriage scene; the bride and groom, seated side by side, receive wedding guests - Hermes, Herakles, and two goddesses, probably Athena and Aphrodite.
