Apollo offering a libation to the raven, kylix, 5th century BC Featured Print

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

The Babes in the Wood, c1878. Creator: Randolph Caldecott Featured Print

The Babes in the Wood, c1878. Creator: Randolph Caldecott

The Babes in the Wood, c1878. "No burial these prettye babes/Of any man receives./Till Robin-redbreast painfully/Did cover them with leaves". The Babes uncle had paid two ruffians to murder them. One of the villains had a change of heart, murdered his accomplice and let the children go. They wandered through the woods until they died of exposure. A ballad of c1600 tells the story of the owner of Wayland Hall, Norfolk, who died leaving his infant son and daughter in the care of his brother. If both children should die before the uncle he would inherit their wealth. After a year, greed overcame duty and family affection. From "The Babes (or Children) in the Wood", illustrated by Randolph Caldecott. [London, c1878]
