Pottery: black-figured neck-amphora.
(a) Hermes leading goddesses to Paris: Hermes advances to right, bearded, with long hair, himation with purple spots, petasos, endromides, and caduceus, by his side a goat to right, followed by the three goddesses, Aphrodite, Athene, and Hera. They have long hair, with fillets, long chitons and himatia, both embroidered, and left hands extended. Aphrodite holds branches of an apple-tree with fruit in right hand, Athene has a high-crested helmet and spear in right hand, and looks back at Hera, who has a sceptre in right hand, ending in a pomegranate. By Athene's side is a hind walking to right.
(b) On the left Apollo Citharoedos to right, beardless, with long hair, fillet, long chiton and himation, both embroidered, playing with a plectrum on the chelys, from which hangs drapery. Before him, looking back at him, is Athene, with long hair, fillet, high-crested helmet, aegis, long chiton and himation, both embroidered, in left hand a spear; by her side a bull walks to right. In advance of her is Hermes moving to right and looking back, bearded, with hair looped up, short chiton and chlamys, both embroidered, petasos, endromides, and caduceus, left hand extended. In the field, branches of an apple tree with fruit.
