Korinthian aryballos, first quarter
of the sixth century BC; found near the Temple of Apollo at Korinth; scene
depicting musician and male dancers. The word Polyterpos next to the musician
could be his name, but as the word means ‘much-pleasing’ may
be an adjective. The leader of the chorus is named as Pyrrhias; both may
be fictitious characters. The painted text is in epichoric Korinthian
script, and is written in reverse.
