Late Geometric pottery spouted krater, showing a man grasping a woman by the wrist as he turns towards a ship with two rows of oarsmen. This may be an early representation of myth, for example, Theseus fleeing Crete with Ariadne, or Odysseus taking leave of Penelope as he sets off to the Trojan War.
