white-ground lekythos: in memory of a musician

The original lekythos, dating to ca 460BC, is attributed to the Sabouroff Painter and is in the Antikensammlungen Berlin.

A gravestone ('stele') is topped with a lyre, which suggests that the deceased was a musician. On the steps of the stele are five variously shaped vases, placed there as offerings. Two females are in attendance.

The muted colours are consistent with the original vase in its current state.
