Our vase is a reproduction of the famous Pronomos Krater, which is exchibited in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli.
The Pronomos vase, a red-figure volute-krater was created circa 400 BCE. Depicting an entire theatrical chorus and cast along with the celebrated musician Pronomos, in the presence of their patron god, Dionysos, it is considered the single most important surviving piece of pictorial evidence for theatre from ancient Greece. It was discovered in Ruvo di Puglia, Italy in 1836.
Side A: In the presence of Ariadne and Dionysos, reclining on a kline with a small winged Himeros, members of the chorus, masked or holding masks, join a pipes player, Pronomos, seated 'below'. Above, to the right of the couple, 'Herakles' talks to 'Papposilenos' – Pappa Satyr . Below a nude youthful man sits on a stool, Demetrios, the author of the satyr play to be performed, holding the text in a 'book roll'.
Side B: Dionysos holding a lyre and Ariadne a blazing torch glide through a rocky terrain peopled by satyrs in dance poses, maenads, a panther and Eros holding cymbals.
