Erotic Greek vase fragments found in Bulgaria

Excavations in Sozopol, Bulgaria, have turned up fragments of a Greek vase painted with erotic scenes. Sorry I couldn’t find a better pic!

According to a preliminary analysis of the style, the painting was made by one of the prominent artists in Apollonia – the Artist of the Running Satyr.

The painting is comprised of seven figures; the scene is erotic, with good style, expressive and very spicy, said the archeologist.

According to him the find will widen the knowledge of the region, its trade contacts, and the aesthetic and artistic criteria of ancient Hellenes and Thracians who used to live in this region, he said further.
