Platter with Bacchic Decoration

This small dish or platter (one of a pair) with a Bacchic scene is closely related in style and subject to the Mildenhall Great Dish itself. Both show Maenads (female followers of Bacchus) dancing and playing musical instruments, in one case accompanied by the god Pan, and in the other by a young satyr. The name Eutherios, written in Greek and in the genitive (possessive) case is scratched deeply on the underside of each dish within the foot-ring. From the UK. 4th century CE. (The British Museum, London)
