Pottery: red-figured volute-krater (bowl for mixing wine and water) showing the sacrifice of Iphigeneia. Agamemnon prepares to sacrifice her, but Artemis intervenes and turns her into a deer. The scene may have been inspired by Euripides' tragedy Iphigeneia at Aulis. The other side shows youths and women.
