Stage Frieze-Theatre Of Dionysus-D

Stage Frieze-Theatre Of Dionysus-D
Part of the decorative frieze that ran along the front of the stage in the Theatre of Dionysus at Athens.

Notice the vine identifying Dionysus. To his left is a figure with a hunting dog. Although this figure wears male clothing, it may be Artemis, who was often depicted this way and was also associated with hunting and wilderness. The nude figure with a shield behind his back (third from left) may be Ares, the god of war.
