SUMMARY

The love-gods Eros and Himeros, and the goddesses Eurynoe, Iaso and Asteria are attendant on the bride Hippodame. It is not clear which Hippodame of myth, whether the wife of Peirithoos or the daughter of Oinomaos. All the figures are labelled. Iaso gazes at herself in a mirror, the seated Hippodame is crowned and served a tray of fruit by Eros. A tiny Himeros is seated below her. Eurynoe leans towards the bride, and Asteria is seated with a lyre.

NOTEThis image is a montage of photos of the vase.
