Epinetra were used as thigh guards by women to protect their clothes against the oil whilst weaving or rolling wool. More elaborate examples were given as temple offerings or used as grave goods for unmarried girls. For similar cf., no. 1814.0704.1205 in the British Museum, which shows a scene of domestic weaving on one side and a symposium on the other. A number of known epinetra have been attributed to the Golonos Group, cf. J. D. Beazley, Attic Black-Figure Vase-Painters, New York, 1978, pp. 480-481.
