    10-03-01/56

    Red-figured hydria, Greek, c420-c400 BC. The figures on this hydria are divided into two zones. The upper zone illustrates the abduction of the daughters of Leukippos by the Dioskouroi, Kastor and Polydeukes (Castor and Pollux). Aphrodite, goddess of love, sits in the lower part of the scene, clearly conniving in the abduction. Her attendant Peitho, goddess of Persuasion, flees from the scene, but Aphrodite and Zeus, father of the Dioskouroi, do not seem moved. The scene in the lower zone shows Herakles performing his final Labour, receiving the golden apples of the Hesperides from the nymphs responsible for guarding the tree in a garden at the end of the earth. Both scenes are remarkable for their peaceful treatment of violent subjects. This softened mood, along with the delicate treatment of the drapery, is very characteristic of late fifth-century Athenian vase painting. GR, 1772.3-20.30* (Vase E 224)

    10-03-02/38

    Red-figured squat lekythos, Athens, Greece, c420-c400 BC. The elegant faces of the women in this garden scene and their fine, multi-pleated drapery are very characteristic of the style of the Meidias Painter and his associates. The names of all the figures are written alongside in white letters. The seated figure is Aphrodite, goddess of Love; Eros, her son and messenger, sits on her shoulder. The figure to the right of them is Peitho, goddess and personification of Persuasion. Peitho is attaching sprays of leaves to a basket known as a kanoun, which was carried in processions. The three female figures to the left of Aphrodite are Kleopatra ('Of noble parentage'), Eunomia ('Good Order') and Paidia ('Games and Playfulness'). These personifications cluster around the goddess, offering fruit or a necklace. The late fifth-century Athenian cult of 'Aphrodite in the Gardens' is likely to have stressed the goddess's links with nature and the renewal of vegetation. GR, 1856.5-12.15 (Vases E 697)
