Red-Figure Hydria

Terracotta , 11

Red-Figure Hydria

Greek, Athens, 480–450 B.C.

The red-figure scene on this Attic water jar has been attributed to the Pan Painter, an Early Classical artist still working in the archaizing style of his predecessors. The elegantly rendered scene depicts the seated god Apollo holding a lyre and accepting the wine poured by his sister Artemis.
