    Priam, king of Troy, kneels as he supplicates the Greek hero Achilles for the corpse of his son Hector. Behind Priam stands Hermes, the messenger god, identifiable by his winged boots. The fragment highlights the liberal use of added colors, particularly white and yellow, by Apulian vase painters.
