Sicilian Red-Figure Calyx Krater

An ancient Sicilian red-figure calyx krater by the Chequer Painter; the obverse depicting a scene of a komos procession led by a nude youth holding a staff and sheaves of wheat, followed by a draped female playing the double-flute aulos and followed by another nude youth holding a torch and staff, each wears a white fillet around their head; on the reverse are two nude youths, one holding a strigil and the other an aryballos.

Ca. 410 - 400 BC.
Height: 14 1/2 in. (37 cm).
Intact.

The Chequer Painter and his follower the Dirce Painter are considered to be the chief forerunners of both early Campanian and Paestan vase painting.
