The Pronomos Vase is the single most important piece of pictorial evidence for ancient theatre to have survived from ancient Greece. It depicts an entire theatrical chorus and cast along with the celebrated musician Pronomos, in the presence of their patron god, Dionysos. In this collection of essays, illustrated with nearly 60 drawings and photographs, leading specialists from a variety of disciplines tackle the critical questions posed by this complex hub of evidence. The discussion covers a wide range of perspectives and issues, including the artist's oeuvre; the pottery market; the relation of this piece to other artistic, and especially celebratory, artefacts; the political and cultural contexts of the world that it was produced in; the identification of figures portrayed on it: and the significance of the Pronomos Vase as theatrical evidence. The volume offers not only the most recent scholarship on the vase but also some ground-breaking interpretations of it.

Oliver Taplin is Emeritus Professor of Classics at Magdalen College, Oxford. Rosie Wyles is Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the University of Nottingham.Review:
"In this book, Taplin and Wyles foster a dynamic conversation among the contributors, who often refer to each other in both the text and the footnotes, revisit the same issues, and disagree with one another. Contributors work together to explain the vase's production, export, and viewing, and Taplin and Wyles allow the reader to decide which explanations are most convincing. Thus the reader feels herself to be an active participant in the ongoing discussion, and a broad range of scholars will find the volume to be useful."--Kristen Seaman, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
