Greek Red Figured Plate: Man and Boy



This plate is something of a marvel, made in Athens about 2,500 years ago, by one of the first people to learn the technique of red-figure painting, and he actually signed it: Epiktetos. Of course, this comes from my recent British Museum visit and I was amazed to read that so fine is this particular artists work that it is possible to identify even his unsigned work.
