about this item
The book tells the story of the Athenian elite between 600 and 400 BCE through the imagery on the luxury pottery from which the wealthy drank at their festivals. More than 6,000 analytic presentations lend insight into the lives of the elite as horse owners, athletes, and banquet socialites. The pictorial analysis is prefaced by a cultural historical section that describes the history and socio-economic situation of the elite.
