: Attic black figure clay oinochoe with a trefoil mouth, a globular body with short and wide neck, and a ring foot. It has a vertical band handle attached from the rim to the middle of the body. It has a black glazed surface apart from a scene painted on black figure style one side. This depicts the hunters’ return with dogs, lagobolon (the throwing stick for hunting) and their killed hare, greeted by a bearded older man. The hunter carries what may be a Scythian bow, and wears un-Greek clothing (possibly Persian, or Greek hunting attire). Details are incised and overpainted in purple. One of the dog is in white overpainted.The top of the scene has a repeated lotus buds decoration around the top. This wine jug has been attributed to Amasis, famous Greek vase painter of the second half of the 6th century BC.
