An Inaccurate Vase

This picture shows Clytemnestra waking up one of the Erinyes to go get revenge on her son Orestes for killing her. This is totally inaccurate—a Fury never sleeps. [Detail of the side A from an Apulian red-figure bell-krater, 380–370 BCE] (tagged: The Erinyes: Alecto, Tisiphone, Magaera , Clytemnestra)
