An Apulian Red-figure Calyx Krater Attributed to the Darius Painter, the Rescue of Alkmene
Mixing bowl (calyx-krater)
Greek, South Italian, Late Classical Period, about 340–330 B.C.
the Darius Painter
Place of Manufacture: Apulia, Italy
Height: 56.8 cm (22 3/8 in.); diameter: 50.2 cm (19 3/4 in)
Ceramic, Red Figure
Side A: Alkmene on the pyre, with rainbow. She is seated on the altar her husband Amphitryon tried to make her pyre. The altar is rectangular with a Doric frieze. Amphitryon and two boys bring wood. Kreon watches at right. An eagle flies to the right above the altar. To the right of the eagle, Hermes is seated with his caduceus in his raised right hand and his petasos in his left. Facing him is Aphrodite. At the upper left is the blind seer Teiresias, apparently the foreteller of Herakles' greatness. A youthful attendant is standing in front of him; he gestures toward Teiresias and with his other hand points toward Amphitryon's attempted sacrilege.
Side B: The nude Dionysos seated on a cloak between two maenads and a young satyr. Dionysos holds a phiale full of offereings in his right hand, which he raises toward the maenad at the left, who holds a tambourine in her lowered left hand.
It is likely that the action and personae are based ultimately on Euripides' lost play, Alkmene, a further echo of which may be seen in the elaborate costume of Teiresias. Zeus had sired Herakles by coming to Alkmene in the guise of her husband, Amphitryon. Accused of adultery, Alkmene took refuge on the altar in their house. Zeus heard her supplications and sent Hermes to tell the clouds to bring the rain that put out the fire and formed the rainbow around Alkmene. Shortly thereafter, Alkmene gave birth to her children, Herakles and his half-brother Iphikles (the child of Amphitryon). Aphrodite and Eros represent the passion of Zeus, who in this version apparently comes in the guise of an eagle to rescue his love.

A: The rescue of Alekmene, mother of Herakles. Alkmene sits on the altar that her husband Amphitryon tried to make her pyre. The altar is a rectangular structure of white stone, with a Doric frieze and black spots on top, perhaps representing ashes. Alkemene is surrounded by a red, yellow, and white rainbow; she wears sandals, a white-dotted fillet, chiton, himation, and a third garment over her shoulders and clutched around her head like a veil or hood. Her bracelets, necklace, and earrings are in added white and yellow. Amphytrion, with lighted torch in his right hand and a long spear in his left, looks toward his wife. He wears a chlamys pinned at the throat and a white pilos and has a sword with a white hilt at his side hanging from a white baldric. Two young attendants bring wood to the altar; the one at the right has a cloak over one arm, the one at the left also carries a lighted torch. At the far right, King Kreon of Thebes looks on, his right hand raised in a questioning gesture, his left holding a white pilos and a spear. Kreon has a cloak around his shoulders and a white baldric across his chest. Zues is present in the form of a yellow-brown eagle, which flies to the right above the altar. Above the eagle, suspended from the upper border, are a pilos in added red and two yellow chariot wheels.
Joining the eagle in the upper register are five figures. To the right of the eagle, Hermes is seated to the right with his caduceus in his raised right hand and his petasos in his left; both are white with yellow shading. He sits upon his chlamys and in otherwise nude, save for elaborate sandals with yellow wings. A quiver with a white strap lies at his feet on the dotted groundline. Facing him, at the upper right is Aphrodite, who sits to the left, holding a branch in her right hand. Eros leans against her right leg and holds a yellow hoop in his right hand; he wears white bracelets, anklets, earrings, and necklace, as well as shoes and a sakkos. Aphrodite wears chiton, himation, kekryphalos, and white shoes. Her bracelets, earrings, and necklace are white. In her left hand she holds the string of an iynx-wheel. At the upper left is the blind seer Teiresias, apparently present as the foreteller of Herakles' greatness. He is seated to the left, wearing shoes, a himation, a red fillet, a belt with white circles, an embroidered chiton, and a tunic with long, red sleeves. he holds a long staff topped by a figured pinax, perhaps the Kaiberic shrine of Thebes, in his left hand. The shaft of the staff is decorated with white dots and tied with a beaded fillet. A youthful attendant, wearing himation and wreath, is standing in front of him; he gestures toward Teiresias and with his other hand points toward Amphitryon's attempted sacrilege. On the ground around the altar are logs and a bovine skull in yellow: a previous sacrificial victim. A tree grows near Teiresias, apparently laurel, and a branch and beaded fillet or necklace fill the field before Aphitryon. Grounlines of white and yellow dots indicate the terrain throughout the picture. Alkemene, Amphitryo
Green Arrow Rolex GMT 2
Limited, super case, maxi-dial GMT Master 2. Some call it the "super case" GMT.
Some call it "Green Arrow" There isn't a name for it. Rolex simply updated the GMT Series yet kept the same "GMT Master 2" moniker. This should be called the GMT3.
This is the hottest watch to come out of Basel 2007. Very hard to get.
Everything is better. Larger case, larger trip lock crown, Daytona style bracelet/clasp, max-dial, and green arrows. The green signifies the Rolex Corporate colors; suggesting this may be a limited run for the 50th Anniversary of the GMT. The 24 HR hands and the model markings are in green. The bezel is made out of ceramic etched in laser compared to the old aluminum. This will not fade.
With this watch, Rolex has dispelled any criticism of the oyster Sports series. Solid clasp, solid end and middle links on the bracelet. This watch has the same crown as the Sea-Dweller and Submariner. The case is bigger in every dimension yet keeping with the 40mm width. Notably, the lugs are larger. Anti-counterfeiting measures have been implemented. In addition to the etch laser coronet, this has the serial numbers etched in the inner wall of the dial case.
