HERAKLES OR THESEUS?—AN ATTIC BLACK-FIGURE VASE AT MONASH UNIVERSITY IN MELBOURNE

Abstract

A small neck-amphora in the Geddes collection, now on loan to Monash University, raises questions of iconography and attribution. The scenes on the vase have been interpreted variously as Herakles and the Bull on both sides, or Herakles on one side and Theseus and the Marathonian Bull on the other. The possibility of Herakles and Theseus being on opposite sides of the same vase at the end of the 6th century BC cannot be easily dismissed, but on the evidence of attributes and parallels it seems more likely that it is Herakles on both sides. The attribution to the Acheloos Painter is also questioned and issues raised concerning the style, shape, and chronology of the vase.
