Drawing ca. 1895-1920 of the Francois vase ca 575 BCE _cropped from

Drawing ca.1895-1920 of the François Vase [ca 570-565 BCE], an Attic black-figure volute krater made and signed by the potter Ergotimos, and painted and signed by Kleitias. Many depictions cover the krater – For example, the third frieze on both sides depicts the procession of the gods and goddesses to the wedding of Peleus and Thetis. The end of the procession shows Peleus between an altar and the house where Thetis can be seen sitting inside. He is greeting his teacher, the centaur Chiron, who is heading the procession together with the divine messenger Iris, followed by many other deities. CC0 via Wikimedia Commons.
