Red-Figure Kantharos

Athens, circa 500-490 B.C.
Terracotta, height 7⅝ in. (19.4 cm.)
Metropolitan Museum of Art

Some kantharoi had high necks like this one, not necessarily with figures on the bowl. The relatively small foot, the handles, and the size suitable for drinking are all features of canonical kantharoi.

The heads in this case are of a satyr and a woman, possibly a maenad.
