Imagine that you are an Athenian attending a symposium at which this vase is part of the wine-serving apparatus.


Then, in the voice of that participant, write about his/her experience in attending the symposium

What did men like best about this occasion? How did they play roles as mentors/pederasts? What was the experience of slaves and women? How did adolescent boys approach and experience the pederastic relationships in which they engaged at the symposium? What was ‘dangerous’ about the symposium to various participants?
