Russenberger, Christian (2008). Zwischen Elektra und Orest. Zu einigen Objekten im Trauerdiskurs rotfiguriger unteritalischer Grabgefässe. Antike Kunst, 51:23-40.

Abstract

A number of South Italian red-figure funerary vases depict the meeting between Electra and Orestes at the tomb of their father Agamemnon. These images can be interpreted as elements of a specific discourse of grief. Central to this discourse are the emotions of the female relatives, which were also prominent in the Greek funerary ritual. In order to comprehend the images in this sense, a preliminary semantic analyses of different objects represented between the figures of Electra and Orestes is necessary. On the one hand the objects influence the narrative quality of the images, but they also contribute to the adaptation of the mythological motif to a sepulcral context.
