Apulian Red-Figured Volute-Krater ca. 410–400 BCE by the Sisyphus Painter depicting the arrival of a young warrior or hero. Alternatively, it could be a departure. It is considered to be possibly Theseus arriving at Athens and being recognized because of his sword by Aegeus. I would also submit its likelihood as either the arrival of Telemachus or Paris to the home of Menelaus and Helen. If you enlarge the image and note the eye contact between the beautiful woman and the handsome young man, you’ll likely agree that it’s Paris before he kidnaps Helen to Troy!
