These vessels were very popular during the 5th century BC. They contained a perfumed oil which was offered either to the dead person or to the gods of the underworld. The Lekythos was used to smear perfumed oil on a woman's skin before getting married and were placed in tombs to allow the unmarried woman to prepare for a wedding in the afterlife. On one side of this lekythos is depicted a scene from the myth of Actaeon & Artemis Actaeon was a famous hero in Greek mythology. There are many and different recounts of the myth; however, they all revolve around the notion that he was a hunter that was transformed into a stag and was then killed by his hunting dogs. According to the most popular version, provided by Callimachus, Actaeon accidentally saw Artemis naked, while she was bathing in the woods; amazed at her beauty, he was spotted by the goddess, who told him not to speak again or he would change into a deer. Upon hearing his hunting dogs, however, Actaeon called them and immediately transformed into a deer. So, he started running into the woods, but his well-trained dogs found him and tore him to pieces. The myth of Actaeon was considered to represent human sacrifice in an effort to appease a deity.
