Our vase is a copy of a white ground lekythos, attributed to the Achilles Painter, (450 B.C) which is exhibited in the National Archaeological Museum, Athens.
The white surface of the lekythos bears a farewell scene; a theme in keeping with the funerary use of this vase. An elegant woman sits on the left before a standing warrior who holds a shield and spear in his left hand and a Corinthian helmet in his outstretched right hand. The scene takes place in the women’s apartments of the house, as indicated by the objects pictured in the background. The silent melancholy of the faces, the calm gestures of the figures and transparency of their garments are impressive.
