Terracotta Kantharos (drinking cup with high handles)Attic Greek, Late 5th Century BC
The kantharos combines the head of a satyr and the head of a woman. On the cuff, above the satyr, is a maenad riding a panther; above the woman, the Theban sphinx seizes a youth. The molded satyr head preserves small but numerous traces of added color.
