Etruscan Red figured kylix; Dionysos and a naked maenad. Both figures move to the right, embracing, their faces close. Dionysos at left, maenad at right. A long piece of drapery begins under Dionysos' right arm, extends across his chest to his left shoulder, falls down behind his back, behind his right thigh to knee level, then across behind the maenad and then up and over Dionysos' left wrist. At right a thyrsus and two plants. Key pattern and cross as the border of the tondo. A&B: woman, naked youth & youth. The outer two face in. The center figure faces left. Recomposed from many fragments; parts of rim and wall missing and restored in plaster.
