    The design is taken from an Athenian hydria (a type of jug used for carrying water) dated to around 520 BC and decorated in the black-figure technique. The Greek god of wine, Dionysos, is holding a vine branch, alongside Satyrs and Maenads. The writing is the potter's signature: 'Pamphaios made me.'
