Description:

Second half of V century B.C. An Attic Red-Figure Lekythos, decorated with a central scene of paideia:  a female figure dressed with a long belted chiton and a conical headdress, probably a Muse, holding a musical instrument in her right hand, facing a nude youth wearing a crested Corinthian type helmet, the shield on his left arm and holding a log spear with the right hand. On the shoulder black-figured linked palmettes, the base of the spout decorated with narrow black rays, meander below the scene; the details in added red wash.
