Oinochoe (Wine Jug)

c. 330 BC

Red-figure terracotta

Overall: 27.9 x 12.1 cm (11 x 4 3/4 in.)

Purchase from the J. H. Wade Fund 1928.601


This is a fine example of the very ornate Italiote style. The Eros figure, like the one on the situla (1977.179) in this case, is given a very feminine hairdo and the soft body of a hermaphrodite.
