Museo dei Brettii – Sala I – Showcase 1

Red-figure skyphos used for drinking during the ritual of the symposium. Ovoid handles set horizontally, slightly inturned rim, bowl with convex profile, disc-shaped foot. The A side shows probably a seated male figure, facing right with his arm raised; the B side shows a naked young man standing on the left, with thyrsus facing a cloaked figure. Under the handles: palmettes and spirals.  Below the lip: waves. Lower delimitation: flattened open meander. Also in this case a scene of Dionysian ritual is represented, with satyrs and maenads.
