Each side of this amphora offers a five-figure scene centered by a major Greek god. On one side stands Dionysos holding the stem of his kantharos in one hand and a vine in the other. Framing him are members of his entourage, a maenad and satyr standing before him and a similar pair behind him. On the other side stands Apollo playing his kithara, with a deer standing beside him. A goddess and Hermes stand before him, while another goddess sniffing a blossom and Poseidon stand behind him. The goddesses are likely Apollo’s mother Leto and his sister Artemis. Details throughout are embellished in added white and some added red. Both scenes are common in black-figure; for the same juxtaposition of the two see the neck-amphora by the Painter of London B 272, now in the Vatican, BAPD no. 306614.
