Pottery: red-figured neck-amphora. (a) Maenad and Seilenos. The Seilenos stands on right in a bent attitude, snapping the fingers of his right hand, left outstretched. He looks round at a Maenad, who rushes forward with thyrsos couched like a lance (butt foremost) and pardalis held out as shield on left. She wears a sleeveless chiton with apoptygma succinct, and her hair is passed through a cap and flies loose. (b) Seilenos draped to left, holding out right hand. Drawing of fine period, but careless, especially in b. Light brown inner markings in a, and markings on nebris. Below each side, sets of three maeanders separated by dotted crosses.
