DESCRIPTION

Hephaestus is led back to Olympus by the god Dionysus. The drunken smith, holding tongs, is supported a satyr. Beside him walks Dionysos bearing a thyrsos (pine-cone tipped staff) and drinking cup. A tambourine playing Maenad and dancing Satyr lead the procession.

This is a drawing of the vase rather than a photograph.
