  • Pottery: black-figured dinos (wine-bowl) and stand, incorporating the fragments 1978.6-6.1 and 2, and 1978.6-7.1 to 3. It shows the Wedding of Peleus and Thetis, above friezes of real and imaginary animals. Peleus receives the wedding guests at his house; among them Dionysos, Hebe, and the centaur Cheiron. Between the columns of Peleus' house is the artist's signature "Sophilos painted me". The first chariot in the procession carries Zeus and Hera, the second Poseidon and Amphitrite, the third Hermes and Apollo and the fourth Ares and Aphrodite. Between the chariots walk groups of Fates, Graces and Muses, one of whom plays the pipes. Athena and Artemis ride in the last chariot, and are followed by Thetis' grandfather, the fish-tailed sea-god Okeanos, his wife Tethys, and Eileithyia, goddess of childbirth. Hephaistos brings up the rear, seated side-saddle on a mule.

  • Black-figured pottery amphora. Under each handle, two patterns of spirals.  (a) Achilles slaying Penthesilea: Achilles steps to right, bearded, with long tresses, fully armed, high-crested helmet and short striped chiton, and has beaten down the Amazon queen Penthesilea on one knee, and plunges spear into her throat. She has a high-crested helmet with cheek-pieces and serpent in relief, short diapered chiton, over which is a pardalis (leopard skin), sword and shield, and looks back at him, thrusting vainly with spear; a stream of blood gushes from her wound. In front of Achilles is inscribed: ??????S; in front of Penthesilea: ???T?S????. On the left is inscribed: ??s???a? ?pt???se; on the right: ???t???d?? ?a???.  (b) Dionysos and Oinopion: Dionysos to left (facing left), bearded, with hair looped up and wreathed with ivy, long white chiton and embroidered himation, holds in left hand vine-branches, and with right gives a cantharos to his son, Oinopion, who stands facing him, nude and beardless, his hair looped up with a myrtle wreath, holding an oinochoe in right hand. In front of Dionysos is inscribed: S?S???? (retr.), ?????s??; above Oinopion: OINO?ION; behind him: ???t???d?? ?a???, as on (a).
