This partially preserved and restored black-figured amphora shows the marriage of Dionysos and Ariadne on the obverse. Dionysos holds a drinking horn in his left hand and an ivy stem in his right: two typical elements of his iconography. Ariadne faces him, holding her himation off her face (or attempting to veil herself?) with her hand. Two dancing satyrs, Dionysos' traditional entourage, frame the pair. On the reverse the scene contains six warriors; three are in typical hoplite dress (greaves, crested helmets, spears and hoplite shields emblazoned with motifs in added white). The other three figures represent so-called 'Scythian archers' identifiable by their typical pointed caps, ornamented trousers, bows and quivers.
