Oinochoe (Pitcher), Ancient Greek

Oinochoe (Pitcher), Ancient Greek, -325, Art Institute of Chicago: Ancient and Byzantine Art

This vase depicts a woman shown running to the right, but turning back to the left. She wears a peplos and a white sakkos (hat), snake bracelets and a necklace. She carries in her right hand a wicker-work kanoun (topped by pomegranates and what seem to be small torches), as well as a fillet and a rosette wreath over her forearm. In her left hand is a large fan. Below her left arm is a large, elaborate tambourine.
