black-figure kylix - Herakles and the Nemean lion

This image is taken from a neck amphora attributed to the black-figure painter, Antimenes. It dates to ca 525 BC and is currently in a private collection.

The twelve labours of Herakles were a popular theme in Greek iconography from the Archaic through to the Hellenistic era, and Herakles was a particular favourite of Antimenes. Here, he is depicted completing his first labour, which was to retreive the hide of the Nemean lion.
