The François Vase is named after Alessandro François who found the vase in Chiusi in Etruria (central Italy) in 1845 CE. This Athenian volute-krater dates from c. 570-565 BCE and is signed by the potter Ergotimos and the painter Kleitias. It is an example par excellence of Attic Black-figure pottery and is decorated with 270 labelled human and animal figures from Greek mythology.
