    Hades and Persephone in their palace in the underworld. Monumental southern Italian Greek vase (330 BCE) from Canossa in Apulia, Italy.


    Red-figured hydria, Greek, c420-c400 BC. The figures on this hydria are divided into two zones. The upper zone illustrates the abduction of the daughters of Leukippos by the Dioskouroi, Kastor and Polydeukes (Castor and Pollux). Aphrodite, goddess of love, sits in the lower part of the scene, clearly conniving in the abduction. Her attendant Peitho, goddess of Persuasion, flees from the scene, but Aphrodite and Zeus, father of the Dioskouroi, do not seem moved. The scene in the lower zone shows Herakles performing his final Labour, receiving the golden apples of the Hesperides from the nymphs responsible for guarding the tree in a garden at the end of the earth. Both scenes are remarkable for their peaceful treatment of violent subjects. This softened mood, along with the delicate treatment of the drapery, is very characteristic of late fifth-century Athenian vase painting. GR, 1772.3-20.30* (Vase E 224)
