Black-figure skyphos, ca. mid 6th century BCE
Culture: Boeotian, Greece
Dimensions: 2 1/2 in. (6.35 cm)
Deep, tapering bowl, straight rim, disk foot, two horizontal handles. A warrior with shield and spear running to the right, preceded by a winged female (Nike? Iris?). At left, a draped onlooker holding a staff. B, three quadrupeds—adult male and female with juvenile—with long ears and tails, and with ribs and spots in added red and white. Under each handle is another juvenile, one of whom snarls with white teeth and a red tongue, suggesting that all five creatures are dogs. Slanting rows of black dots serve as filling ornament. The painting is unusual: there is no incision (and is thus not “black-figure”), but rather dependence on added colors, with white employed for the flesh of both males and females. On a Boeotian skyphos from Halai: Coleman (1999), 308, fig. 19.
