The Atalanta Lekythos (Funerary Oil Jug), Douris, 500-490 BC

The Atalanta Lekythos (Funerary Oil Jug), Douris, 500-490 BC, Cleveland Museum of Art: Greek and Roman Art

The extraordinary intact conditon of the fragile white ground and the spirited yet delicate drawing have made the vase renowned as one of the finest white ground lekythoi in existence. Atalanta, who would marry only the man who could beat her in a foot race, is here being teased by three Erotes, winged gods of love. Each figure is identified by name: EPOS and ATALANTE. Douris was an Athenian vase painter who was active from about 500–460 BC. Size: Overall: 31.8 cm (12 1/2 in.) Medium: painted white-ground terracotta
