Lecture by T. Carpenter Oct. 4 2016



The question explored in this lecture is: What can a rich visual tradition tell us about beliefs and practices of a people for whom we have no written sources? The Italic (non-Greek) people who lived in Apulia in southern Italy are focus of our exploration, and Dionysiac imagery on 4th century BC figure decorated pottery found in their tombs provides the evidence for the test.
