5706. Table support with a Dionysiac group. Marble from Dokimeion in Asia Minor. Unknown provenance. This piece was the single support for a table top. The pillar-support is adorned by a group of Dionysos, Pan and a Satyr.

The nude Dionysos holds a rhyton (ritual vase) ending in the front half of a panther. Next to him the goat-footed god Pan holds a lagobolon (stick to hares). In front of him is a small cylindrical basket, from which a snake is emerging. A young Satyr climbs up the vine and cuts grapes with in his right hand. From the branch hangs a lagobolon, a pan-pipe and a goatskin. The exposed parts of the bodies are very well polished. Traces of red and yellow colour are preserved on the hair of the figures and the branches. This elaborate piece is from an Asia Minor workshop. AD 170-180. National Archaeological Museum, Athens, Greece --- 5706. Τραπεζοφόρο με διονυσιακό σύμπλεγμα. Μάρμαρο Δοκιμείου Μικράς Ασίας. Άγνωστης προέλευσης. Αποτελούσε το μονόποδο στήριγμα της πλάκας ενός τραπεζιού. Τον πεσσό-στήριγμα στολίζει σύμπλεγμα Διονύσου, Πανός και Σατύρου. Ο γυμνός Διόνυσος κρατεί ρυτόν (τελετουργικό αγγείο) που απολήγει σε ημίτομο πάνθηρα. Πλάι τou ο τραγοπόδαρος Παν κρατεί λαγωβόλο. Μπροστά του υπάρχει μια μικρή κυλινδρική κίαιην από όπου ξεπροβάλλει φίδι. Ο μίκρος Σάτυρος είναι οκαρφαλωμένος στην κληματαριά και, κρατώντας στο δεξί χέρι ένα δρεπάνι, κόβει σταφύλια. Από το κλαδί ένα λαγωβόλο, η σύριγγα του Πανός και μια δορά αίγας, Τα γυμνά μέρη των σωμάτων είναι πολύ καλά στιλβωμένα. Ίχνη κόκκινου και κίτρινου χρώματος οώζονται στα μαλλιά και στα κλαδιά. Το περίτεχνο έργο προέρχεται από μικρασιατικό εργαστήριο. 170-180 μ.Χ. Εθνικό Αρχαιολογική Μουσείο. Αθήνα.
