Ceramic replica of a red-figured oil-flask (lekythos), made according to the original ancient technique. The original comes from an Attic workshop (475 - 450 BC) and is decorated with a scene from the wrestling-school (palaestra) which represents a naked young athlete washing himself over a basin. In the background, is depicted his gear is consisting of a sponge, a scraper (stlengis) and a flask (aryballus) hanging next to his sandals. The picture is attributed to the Bowdoin painter, by whom wrestling themes are relatively rare.
