285 (found at Ruvo). cultural and iconographic reasons for including satyrs, without any need to appeal to a satyr play to explain their inclusion*143 If the iconography of satyr play is at all like that of tragedy, however, then the same reservation about iconocentrism holds good: a picture may be informed by a play even though there is no explicit sign of theater as such. Thus, the fact that there are more than a dozen Attic vases of Prometheus offering fire to the satyrs makes it quite plausible that these paintings were informed, as has been suggested, by the Aeschylus satyr play that told the story,144 When we turn to the Western Greeks, there are thinner pickings.

64)... but these are hardly serious illiteracies, and are in any case remarkably few and far between. Generally speaking, the mythical narratives make good coherent sense, and the name labels are accurate and display scrupulous orthography. The vases must at least be allowed as prima facie evidence that the viewers appreciated them in all their detail and sophistication—evidence that should stand unless there is stronger direct (rather than presumed) evidence to the contrary. Giuliani's challenging theories about the context and function of the Apulian vases arise partly out of an attempt to account for this very discrepancy between the art and the supposed viewing public.

91 It is noticeable that nearly half of the possibly tragedyrelated scenes from Paestum are related to the Oresteia, and that at least nine of them show the very common scene of Orestes and Elektra at the tomb (see nos. 14). This may suggest that the range of tragedy known at Paestum was not as wide as it was in Sicily, let alone in Apulia. There is another relevant feature that sets the Paestan pots apart, especially those by Assteas. He is quite assiduous in adding name labels; but, unlike the Apulian painters, he seems to like adding fictional labels of his own, which do not, as far as we know, have any basis in any other telling of the myth.
