Image Index > Dionysiac Scenes > Another View Of The Same


DESCRIPTION
A wild revel around the wine bowl on the top register. The area to the left of the handle continues the right part of the scene shown in the other views. As we see, there is also a line of grossly ithyphallic "gangbangers" ready to contribute to the orgy on this side of the wine bowl, although the last figure turns in the other direction, as if repulsed by the thought of penetrating a bearded man.
