Athenian cup, interior symposium, man with drinking horn

Propped against a striped cushion, the man holds up a large drinking horn in one hand. The long fingers of his other hand are outstretched, perhaps applauding or marking time to a song. Above his legs hangs an animal-skin case for a musical instrument. This vase was painted by a craftsman known today as the 'Nikosthenes Painter'.
