Apollo offering a libation to the raven, kylix, 5th century BC
Attic White Ground kylix of the early 5th century BC. Showing Apollo sitting on a stool performing a libation whilst holding a lyre. A raven looks on. This scene posibly could allude to the myth of King Phlegyas's daughter Koronida (from the Greek korone, raven), who was in love with Apollo, although some scholars believe it is simply a bird with prophetic powers. From the Archaeological Museum of Delphi.
