Pottery: red-figured bell-krater. (a) Eros playing astragali (knucklebones). On the right Eros, closely draped in a mantle, with wings raised, is seated to left on a square base jesting on a plinth; he stoops forward, supporting on the back of his right hand a number of astragali; a heap of others lie on the ground beside it. In the centre stands a nude ephebos (Ganymedes) leaning on a staff, who places with his right a circlet on the head of Eros. On the left a second ephebos, closely draped in a mantle, stands looking on, resting his left on a staff. (b) A draped ephebos to left, his head uncovered, between two more draped ephebi, confronted, staff in hand.
