Replica of a red-figure skyphos made according to the original ancient technique. The original is from an Attic workshop (mid-5th century BC) and depicts an owl standing between two olive branches. The owl and the olive are the pre-eminent symbols of Athena, recalling her victory in the contest against Poseidon for rule of the city. They are represented on a large number of Attic works, such as Athenian coins, with emblematic significance, the most characteristic of which are the vases.
