The Athenian stamnos, a shape favored by the Etruscans, was made primarily for export.
Four lively figures move to the right across the front side of this stamnos, a vase used for storing and mixing wine. First comes a finely dressed woman playing the pipes, followed by three male figures, all nearly nude. The bearded one holds a drinking cup and reaches back, perhaps dancing, while the last in line concentrates on the music of his lyre.
