This week we talked about the fact that, while ancient Athens was the birthplace of democracy and has been known throughout the centuries as a bastion of intellectual and personal freedom, somewhere between 2/4 and 4/5 of its population were slaves.
For your papers, examine the famous amphora (an amphora is a kind of vase) titled "Olive-Gathering" by the Antimenes Painter. The image is below. FYI, It is currently held in the British Museum and portrays, among other things, slaves gathering olives. Then, citing the lectures and your own interpretations of the images on the amphora, please answer the question: "How does the scene on the amphora challenge our ideas about Athenian freedom and democracy?"
