Abstract :
The paper examines an Attic red-figured stamnos in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale of Siena, acquired along with the Emilio Bonci Casuccini Collection, which consists of finds from Chiusi. The iconography shows some young women picking apples: the gesture can be connected to wedding rituals, but it may also contain allusive meanings. The vase can be attributed to the Copenhagen Painter, an artisan of Syrian origin working in the Athenian Kerameikos between the first and the second quarter of the 5th century BC. Lastly, the paper examines the vase provenance inserting the stamnos in the stream of Attic pottery that reached Chiusi and its countryside.
