It's All Greek on Walkabout

The original lekythos, dating to ca 420BC and attributed to the Reed Painter, is now in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens.

Charon, the ferryman whose duty it was to transport the souls of the dead across the river Styx in the Underworld, is shown on the left. He is about to take on board the soul of a female.

This lekythos has been painted by hand for us in Greece. The muted colours are consistent with the original vase in its current state.
