Title: Nessun incantatore di serpenti sul vaso apulo MArTA 112328
Author(s): TODISCO, Luigi
Volume: 95 Date: 2020
In this note, an over-painted oinochoe in Gnathia style is reconsidered. It has recently been cleaned of pictorial additions made after its discovery in a tomb in Tarentum. These additions had caused an incorrect reading of the figurative scene painted over the surface of the vase, now more correctly interpretable as a representation of a Silenus playing the aulos in connection with the Dionysian sphere and the symposium.
