Classical Greek Period
Neck amphora (with twisted handles). A) Apollo and Artemis. Artemis at left, Apollo at right, an altar, with volutes, between them; both standing. Artemis, holding bow and arrows in left hand, seems to be pouring from a pitcher onto the altar. Apollo, playing an unsupported lyre with his left hand, pours a libation from a phiale onto the altar. B) Dionysos and a maenad. Maenad at left, Dionysos at right. Maenad wears leopard's skin, holds oinochoe in right hand and a snake in the other. Dionysos faces her, standing, thyrsus in left hand and kantharos in right. Intact, in excellent condition except as noted below.
