Seller: artancientltd (9,296) 99.7%, Location: London, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 291942700811 Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge An ancient Greek red-figure ceramic kylix, produced in Athens, circa 4th Century BC.Red-figure pottery is amongst the most recognisable of all ancient wares; the surface was treated like a canvas, painted with scenes that tell the story of life in the ancient Greek world. This wine cup is decorated with a proud bull on the interior tondo.Kylikes were used during drinking parties (symposia) which lay at the heart of ancient Athenian society, where men congregated to debate love and philosophy, to plot and boast, but above all to revel in wine and song. This vessel would have been held with one hand in the reclining position, and one can imagine the bull slowly revealing itself as the red wine was drained amidst the drunken laughter and debate of an Athenian evening over 2,300 years ago.
