A drawing made from the Pandora Vase, dated
460 B.C., in the Ashmolean Museum, and is given as an example of the
treatment adopted by Greek artists in delineating the following garments
It represents Zeus (on the left), Hermes and Hercules, wearing respectively the himation, chlamys, and kolobus. Pandora wears the Ionic
crinkled chiton, and a small himation, which is nothing more than a
veil, over an elaborate stephane. Eros is holding her girdle.
