Boar's Head Rhyton

Ceramic, Greek, 4th century BCE. For sale from Artemis Gallery at liveauctioneers, expected price $3500. What a handsome fellow. Below, from the same auction, a Hallstatt (early Celtic) bronze situla, which sounds like something fancy but is just the Latin word for bucket. A bit pricier at around $200,000.
