Greek men enjoyed evenings of wine, poetry, music, and other entertainment at each other's homes. Their favorite drinking cup was the shallow kylix. The user could enjoy the scene on the inside only after draining the cup. His companions could see the exterior scenes as he drank. Here the subject matter includes the Greek god of wine, Dionysos, and mythical companions.
