It might havc bcen, for instancc, a matter oi differcnt proportion;rl dernand from the overscas market, especially Etruria, which a"-nirlr-o.r. ,r.rorc important source for conrplete early red figure vases. Certainly, outsidc Athens, carly red figurc was particulirly weliome in Etruria, which at any rate tcnded to attract only thc bettcr vases. Other ntatk(]ts, for thc Grceks iD South Italy, in Grcece itself, and probably cven in Athens, apart fronr thosc supplying dedications for rrajor sanctuaries, were motc conscrvarive in thcir tastes, and continued cven into the fifth century ro handle more ofthc chcapcr black figurc vascs. Since rhe potters' quartcr was by this time well awarc ofthc value ofthe Etruscan markct, and had designed special lincs for it, rhis trray lrc responsibJe in somc degrec for thc plcthora of rcd figure cups. The pioneer vases which atrcst in thcir inscriptions the close rciationshlp bctwccn thc irrtisrs ofthe Group and Athcnian society, also went rnainly to Etruria, wherc thc point_of-thc inscriptions must have been lost, together with the topical value of the-kalos namcs, praising current beauties. It -has bceir suggested that manysets ofvases were ordercd for particular fcasts, where thcy wc'r-e admircd, then disposed of through a secondhand market to Etruria. ihis gives more point to.rhc kalos names and topical allusions, bur possibly the vaseiwere long on in the potters'quarter bcfore s"rle or choicc for shipnrent, .public -display and it is oftcn a paintcr who shows aJJcgirnce ro a particuJlr yourh in his kalos inscriptions, whcre we would expect nrorc divcrsity ifdifeicnt Drtrorls wcre putting ordcls.

Cup painters
Through thc Late Archaic pcriod, and cspccially in thc first decade ofthc fifth century, xt least hxlfthc production ofred 6gurc vascs in Athelrs was accounted lor by cups. This is a srulllcr proportion than the production ofthc lrtcr sixtlr century, whcn black 6gure artists still supplied most of thc largcr vases, but still considcrably greater thxtr in later ycars, whcn red fisure xrtists answered all nccds, e)though thcre r,vas a growirtn production ofplain black vascs, and
cspecially of black cups. Thc old eye cup shapc, Typc A, is virtually dcad. The elcgent Type B and the heavier Typc C with a concave d1n are the popular forms, and a nrrnor

roundcd bowl on a spl:rying foot with a mouldine at its top, rccalling featurcs ofthe black figure Droop cup (,4BFH pp. 6 r i) whosc long career was not yet over. Thc old schemc of decoration with eycs is quite gone exccpt for vcry fcw cxamples by thc Colmar and Anriphon Painters early in thc century [242]. Even rhc palmettc scrolls, with or withoul lotus tcrnintls, bccome less cominon_ But thc tondos are regularly edgcd witl-r a m:leander pxttern now, soincrinlcs distinctiveJy dcsigncd by diiferent painters, and the srmc pattern quite oftcn tppcars bclow the lieurc liezes. Thc adoption of these pattern borders is a convenient signal for thc advcnt of what wc choosc to call Late Archaic, but thcrc is, of course, no sLldden brcak, and just ils wc have had to trace in rhe last chapter thc work of somc plirrrcrs wcll into the frfth century (as Epiktctos), so hcrc several will pr.risu Lceqros and declarc thc start of their carccrs bcforc the turrr of thc ccntury. Indeed, beforc we tum to thc more prolific great nanlcs, an isolated mastcrpiecc of littlc bcfore 5oo can providc a link. It is I supcrb cup in Bcrlin [zr4], signed by PErrHrNos (we havc a scrap ofxnothcr, carlier cup sirned by him) tnd praisiug Athcnodotos, whorn wc shall mcct again- We havc the ncw pattcrns in and out, a macander echoccl by thc pattern ofl)cleus' Iockcd hlnds .s hc grasps Thetis, urpcrturbed by hcr snakes and lion which aftack hi1n. Outsidc are lovcrs, more forward where thcir own sex is conccricd. limbs showinq clcar through dress, with a display ofsprcading folds and ziezaE hcn)s recalling Phintias or thc Sosias Painter. There arc onc or two points of tcchniquc to bc mcntioned bcforc we turn to the lnajor cup paintcrs. Cor.ll-rcd for dccoratior ofbands in or outsidc cups is srilJ uscd, sparingly. Thcre are, howcvcr, from about 5ro on, a numbcr of cups r,vhich ernploy whitc sround for the intcrior, occasionally for the cxte or too. On thcsc thc dccorarion is in outliDc, using thc same thick and thin paintcd Iincs with increasing use of added washcs or red es tirne passcs. Wc havc noticcd thc technique on lckythoi (but no earlicr), r,vherc outlinc and

varicty, thc Acrocup [275] with a straight rirn and cithcr a shallow or

P:rmphlios made a cup wirh rr l,L.r,li figurc ridcr on thc white ground tondo. Of the salnc date is I cu;r rrrtr rior with an outlinc l)ionysos facing a black figure sttyr [zi5]. Thc cLrp ir r, ,.rrly es any lckythos wirh comparab)c decoration, thc style stil1 Pioncct, .rrr,1 the lttribution to EuphroDios could be correcl, l:ut is not sure Thc Clothir , rr1, hecl whitc ground o;tside only [Jr]. The mair scries bcgins with cups of ,.,'lr, ()ncsinros (Proto-Panaician alld rhe rclated Elcusis P:rinter fzr7] who ,trll praises Lcagros) ar-rd his kin [zi6], xnd coniinucs in our pe-riod with , ..,'tiplcs by thc Brygos Painter [2IE] and l)ouis amorg orhen lzTjl''fhc ( , )rrr nroDesf schemc is to havc a black border to the toido, solllctimcs wjth a ,r,r'lhrthcr in lo flanc lhc flgurc or figurcs. lt bccomcs commorlcr to tlll thc , irL rior with whitc. and the inner line border is thcn normlrl. If. ground linc l rrccded it is usually an ovolo. A vcry few kcep the rcd 6gr-lrc tondo but fiIl rlrr zonc round it with white to the lip. Exreriors are usually red figure, solrcrrrrrcs all black, occxsionally white ground I'hesc :rre cxquisite cups, usually avoiding the trivirl in tlrcir subjcctrrr.rttcr.rnd oftelt intendcd f<rr dedication, showing deitics or liyth scellcs' llrcrc is e distinguished succcssion in thc Early Classical.

The lengthy discussion in AIJFH Chapter Ninc obviatcs the ncccssity for detailed re-study ofshapes, names and uses, and thc developmcnt ofmany ol' the more important shapes has been considered in the course of rhe chaptcrs on stylc. Some recapitulation and con-rment on new or complex shapcs wiJl
sullicc. Amphorat. Of thc belly amphorae very few ofthe old varicty are still madc besidc rhc rrcwer Type A with irs angular handles and steppe d foot 18, r 46, r 7 t ). Type C, with rollcd lip and plain foot Ir5z], has a limited vogue in Archaic rcd figure to about 45o. Neck amphorac less often follow the standard late sixthcentury scheme [t49, t64, jt9] but the small 'doubleens' with doublc-rccded handlcs and concavc lips are made chrough thc Latc Archaic period Ir 64]. Therc are Nikosthenic survivals [56], copics ofthe Panathenaic shapc ft5t, t 6z, t 7j. 3o7] are particularly common after 5oo, and pointcd versions resembling thc plain wine jars ltjz, t96). Thcrc arc a few special varieties as well as diffcrent forms ofhandlc ridged, rceded, twisted [138, J24]. Morc important arc thc small, high-necked Nolan amphorae 116o, j6ol, introduced about 49<:. Pelikai become very popular after 5oo, cspccially with the Mannerists [142, r79, t8o, etc.l. Neck pelikai are rarc [383]. Hydriai. The sixth-century shouldered type has a surprisingly long though tenuous existcnce to at lc.rst 48o lr 75]. One-piccc kalpides are far commoner with thc figurc scenc tending to spread off the shoulder and round or-r to the bclly of the vase Ir89]. Oinochoai arc easiest summarised by outlines of thc varieties decorated in Archaic red figure, giving Bcazley's classificatlott (see next page). See also for

The end ofthe sixth century sees the beginning ofthe satyr play in Athens, dressed as satyrs, shaggy trunks holding on erect phallos and tail, fore and aft [Jr4]. But our artists often ignore the costume and almost always the masks, in depicting what must be satyr play themes, the earliest of whidr

with actors

jot.t), as athletes [163] or directly or indirectly, from their may derive, parody myth, of involved in new stage role. The best ofthis comes later in the century bt ov lt6j, t74,
satyr scenes on vases, giving them family life 1t77, zqg, 125,

to be their robbing of Herakles. Many of the new


j6i may be inspired by satyr Plays. The maenads with whom they dance wear animal skins over their ordinary clothes (as may any Dionysiac attendant), holding animals l4o.z' zoTl ot snakes (and a snake hair band on [zl8]), or wielding the thyrsos wand, with its knob of ivy leaves ltjz.z\, which may also be held by Dionysos or, Iess often, his satyis. The maenads only undress to sleep. Some perform a winged dance by holding the cufii oftheir loosened chiton sleeves in their hands I136, z7 r, 3ai]. Theyire often molested by the satyrs, but virtually never suffer thc expected fate. A satyr's sexual release is generally self-administered.- For hinr th; pursuit is the thing, the excitement ofthe dance, the touch ofthigh or arm, the impossibly heady pleasure of discovering or uncovering a maenad asleep lttj, i571, but not the consummation. On the vases only mortals make it with theii women. The satyrs act out mortal fantasies, mortal dreams which always seem to fade before fulfilment They illustrate the timeless frustrations
