The wide-mouthed bell krater was designed for mixing wine with water. This superb vessel may have been utilised at a symposium, or drinking party, an occasion for philosophical discussion as well as drinking and music. The obverse depicts a draped female wearing a sakkos and seated on a rocky outcrop. She holds a large basket in her left hand. Facing towards the female, a crouching satyr clutches a kantharos in his right hand and a basket in his left. The laurel motif forms a band beneath the rim and a meander design encircles the groundline. Fillets adorn the remaining space in the field.The reverse shows two heavily draped males facing one another, both carrying staffs. An unidentified object is positioned in the field above them. - (AM.0076)
