27. 13.95 FRAGMENT OF KYLIX Silen PLATE XGreatest length, 0.20 m. The central portion of a kylix of moderate size undecorated on the exterior. The picture complete except for the silen's left hand with a bit of leopard-skin and the butt end of the stick. Slight restoration along a break running across his right calf and the tip of the stick. Relief contours throughout; the hair contour reserved. Red used for the wreath and the inscription, brown for the inner markings, which have been strengthened in the photograph. From Cervetri. Ann. Rep. 1913, p. 94. Beazley, V.A., p. 91. Hoppin, i, p. 38, no. 40. Beazley, Att. V., p. 180, no. 56. Within a border of continuous interlocking maeander, a silen dancing to right in a twisted pose, his head turned back, his body in front view, his weight on his frontal right leg, his bent left leg in profile to right. He has a long phallos-stick in his right hand, and with his left holds out the leopard-skin which he wears tied about his shoulders. His bald head is bound with a wreath. In the field at the left, ΚΑΛΟ[Σ], retrograde. About 490-480 B.C. By the Brygos painter. Compare especially his silens on the cup in the Cabinet des Médailles, Hartwig, Meisterschalen, Pls.
