This chapter discusses some of the more important iconographic issues pertaining to the Greek evidence for the theme of “gods pouring libations”, namely, that of red-figure vase-painting. It draws from a representative catalogue of such vases from the late archaic, classical, and Hellenistic periods of antiquity, and includes an analysis of their cultic features.

Keywords:   Greek gods, pouring libations, vase pantings, cultic features
