A bearded man seated on a chair plays with two children, holding a bird
in each hand. His name, Euempolos, designates a cheap slave.
He is probably one of the attendants mentioned in a naval list of the
late 5th century BC, who were granted their freedom by the Athenians
thanks to their participation in a battle against the Spartans
ca. 390 B.C.
