Decorating one side of the body of this krater, a painting scene depicts a naked youth with a thyrsos offering a kantharos to a seated woman who holds a wreath. Winged Eros, the mischievous god of love, hovers above, carrying an ewer and a phiale. A bearded satyr playing twin pipes, a dancing maenad, and youthful horned satyr round out the scene. On the other side, the painted scene depicts three standing himation clad youths and two stelae. Elaborate palmettes adorn the spaces beneath the handles. As well, there is encircling lower band of meander and chequerboard squares that frames the bottom half of the figural scenes. The top half is bordered by a band of representing a laurel wreath while a band featuring an ovolo pattern enlivens the rim. - (X.0292)
