A black-figure lekythos (oil flask) depicting two women sharing a cloak and gazing at each other. The imagery carries an erotic component, due to the connotations of gazing and cloak-sharing in Greek art. Attributed to the Pharos Painter, c. 550 BCE. Athens. 17.5 cm (7 in) in height. (Metropolitan Museum of Art)
