From the collection of Alex G. Malloy, former dealer in antiquities for 40 years. Ex Jerome Eisenberg, ex, Malloy, Official Guide to the Artifacts of Ancient Civilizations, # 1308.

Developed in the second half of the sixth century, most probably in the workshop of Nikosthenes, the kyathos (pl. kyathoi; compare the Greek verb, kuein - 'to contain') is a small dipper, with a single high handle and low foot. It seems that the shape was copied from Etruria, and, like the Nikosthenic amphorae, serves as a likely example for the targeting of a particular market by Athenian potters.

The satyr was the goat demon of Greek myth, whom the Israelites were warned not to worship.
