About this artwork

This pyxis, which has concave sides, a flange over the base, and a flat lid with a handle in the shape of a pomegranate, is attributed to the Euaion Painter, who was a follower of Douris. Douris’s name is known because he signed his vases. However, the painter of this vase is unknown, so he is now called after an inscription on another vase that names one Euaion as a handsome boy.
