    • RF Lekythos
    • c430BC
    • Departure libation, Persian leaves wife
    • Consider Persai!
    • Kleophon painter did a Greek scene of this - recognisable emotions
    • Women dressed in draped peplos in both 
    • Persian man has the usual - trousers, soft cap, spear
    • c450BC
    • Persian Queen and King
    • Mannheim Painter

    • Still wearing patterned long trousers and sleeves beneath draped garments
    • Wearing similar draped caps to in other Greek depictions of Persians
    • Quite richly dressed but not as a Persian would depict himself, let along his king

    Consider Persai
    • Persian oriental 'despot'
    • c400
    • Squat lekythos: Royal procession, with guard,
    • fan-bearer, torch-bearer, musicians, dancers

    • Looks almost Dionysiac, but with men in the patterned outfits
    • Plus a mortal king where the god should be - seems not quite right.
