Obverse, Hermes

Hermes, the divine messenger, identifiable by a winged petasos (broad-brimmed hat), moves quickly across this vase. The addition of the symbol emphasizes the presence of Hermes in the scene. The fluent drawing and articulation of the figure were heightened with details in white marble. The ivy and medallions applied to the exterior surface embellish the upper part of the vase.
