SUMMARY

A procession of gods arrive at the wedding of Peleus and Thetis. First to arrive are the goddesses Leto and Khariklo, the wife of Kheiron, who walk side by side. Then comes Dionysos holding a vine, and the youthful Hebe dressed in white. The Kentauros Kheiron follows, holding a bow and a branch hung with the fruits of the hunt - hares and a deer. He is shown with the foreparts of a man, including feet, and the rear-quarters of a horse. Behind him walk the goddess Themis and her three Nymphai daughters.

NOTEThis image is a montage of several photos of the vase.
