Lissarrague (op. cit. p. 93ff.) discusses the chest as a decidedly feminine object in the Greek world, tied explicitly to a woman's space and the woman's role of "managing material goods of the oikos and in domestic production (p. 100)." The curiosity of the satyr, in spying on the woman's world, places him in a space where he does not belong as he "infringes, once again, on the boundaries shaping Greek society; he cannot resist and dives, head first, in the woman's chest, even if it means losing his head (op. cit. p. 100)."
