Column-krater (bowl for mixing wine and water). Hephaestus returns to Olympus escorted by Dionysus and his companions. Middle Corinthian, about 600-575 BC; perhaps by the Ophelandros Painter. From Nola in Campania. Some of the dancers are shown wearing padded costumes, suggesting that this represents not merely the myth but an actual religious ritual or dramatic performance.
