A red-figure vase painting of the Trojan prince (and cup-bearer to the god Zeus) Ganymede, playing with a hoop and rooster, or game-cock. The presence of a game-cock may be representative of Ganymede's relationship with Zeus, as men in ancient Greece often gifted game-cocks as tokens of affection. Made by the "Pan Painter". c. 470 BCE, Attica. 16.5 cm (6 1/2 in) x 11 cm (4 5/16 in). (Courtesy of the Metropolitan Museum of Art)
