Attic Black-Figure Oinochoe

Attic Black-Figure Oinochoe

An ancient Greek Attic black-figure trefoil oinochoe (a wine pitcher). The central panel depicts a scene of Dionysos holding a cornucopia as he follows behind a bearded satyr who turns his head back toward the god.

Athens, Attica.
Ca. 515 - 500 BC.
Height: 8 3/4 in. (22 cm).

The vase is attributed to the Painter of W?rzburg 351. Confer for this painter: Beazley, J.D., Paralipomena (Oxford, 1971): 188 and Beazley, J.D., Attic Black-Figure Vase-Painters (Oxford, 1956): 436.1.

The Greek deity Dionysos was associated with wine and vegetation, and by extension fertility. The god was popular in Rome under the name Bacchus or Liber Pater. The orgiastic rites of his retinue, the Satyrs and Maenads, are often depicted in Classical art.

Published: St?hler, Boreas 2, (1979) pp. 206-208, pl. 28, 2-3.

Formerly in the J.S. collection, Pennsylvania; previously in a European private collection by 1979; New Jersey private collection, 1994.
