Even if the ladies linked to Dionysos may perhaps pour libations they're often now not proven consuming or outfitted with cups. The presence of the god Dionysos on a drinking-cup should always elevate the query of the connection among the Dionysiac actions of the symposion and the Dionysiac actions of cult. however the peculiarities of this Projecting Identities within the Greek Symposion forty seven cup focus the drinker’s realization surprisingly sharply at the query of the adaptation among the 2. should still cult be noticeable because the ultimate level of sympotic extra, whilst the combined wine of the crater (wine-mixing bowl) has been changed by means of the unmixed wine of the wineskin and while individuals are freed to behave within the unconstrained demeanour of Thracians or satyrs? Is the distinction among the household and enclosed area of the andron and the rocky area of the geographical region parallel to a distinction among the restricted habit anticipated within the symposion and the unconstrained habit allowed in cult? Does the liberation of Dionysiac cult justify behaving like a satyr within the symposion and ignoring conventions of strength of will? The drinker whose come across with the scenes at the open air of this cup activates such concerns will, on draining the cup, be confronted with a slightly various scene within the inside (figure 2. 5b). this can be the scene of a bald guy with stubbled chin, donning a embellished chiton less than his himation, arriving at a door the place he's met through a tender guy maintaining a spear and with a himation thrown around his shoulders.

As Williams has proven, on Athenian pots it's commonly previous males who're proven with shaven beards or heads, and those males are ordinarily heavily on the topic of moments of transition – they mourn a demise, or are fathers of daughters approximately to be married or of sons who leave for battle. 28 The shaved beard used to be rather linked to Priam, the daddy who had such a lot to mourn approximately, quite a bit so, certainly, comedian poet may perhaps use ‘‘to be priamed’’ for ‘‘to be shaved. ’’ Priam is usually proven shaved at the well known vase imagery during which he's proven vacationing Achilles to ransom the physique of his son Hector. One chance which the sympotic viewer will surely have entertained, accordingly, is this determine is Priam, and that the door stands for Achilles’ tent, during which lies Hector’s corpse. but this isn't the normal iconography of that scene, which exhibits Priam contained in the tent ahead of Achilles himself, and there's no signal right here of Hermes who publications Priam to the tent or of the massive ransom which Priam brings. No historical viewer could have been convinced of his interpretation, and the point of interest of the scene needs to lie now not in wondering Priam and Achilles, or approximately the other specific delusion, yet in considering outdated males, younger males, and the moments of transition that include the war the following signaled by means of the younger man’s spear.
