The later production of Attic ceramics does still however reserve some examples that are not without freshness and originality. An example is this kylix by the Painter of Jena, with an illustration of Triptolemus on the inner ring. Vases by this painter, who conventionally takes his name from the city where the majority of the vases attributed to him are preserved and whose activity was carried out in Athens, have been found in Crimea and in Etruria.
