Our vase is a copy of the famous kylix, dating to 540–530 BC, known as Dionysus Cup, attributed to the Exekias Painter, which is exhibited in the Staatliche Antikensammlungen in Munich.
In the center, a sailing ship is depicted, travelling from right to left. The prow of the ship is decorated like an animal's head, while the rudder is clearly discernable at the rear. Within the ship is a well over life sized figure, the god Dionysus. Vines grow from the mast, with three large clusters of grapes on the right and four on the left. Dolphins swim below the ship—two towards the right, three towards the left—and a further dolphin is found on the right and the left-hand sides of it. Like the vine, dolphins are symbols of Dionysos. The long-haired, bearded god wears an ivy crown and holds a cornucopia in his hand. On the outside, around each of the handles, six warriors stand over a corpse. The space between the handles is decorated with a stylised face with large eyes and a small nose.
