In this article are presented seventeen vases of the collection of Gr. Empedokles, which was bequeathed to the National Museum of Athens. These vases belong to the 4th century B. C. and represent all the characteristic styles of the century. The Nuptial Lebes N.M. 19429 (fragment) was decorated by a follower of the Midias Painter at the end of the first quarter of the 4th century. The dating is based on the similarity of the Nike’s face to the seated God’s of the Decret relief of the 378 /7 ( ΕΠ 7859, Speier, R.M., 1932, p. 55, pi. 19, 2 ). The Pelike N.M. 18747 was decorated, probably, by the Iena Painter in the beginning of the second quarter of the 4th century. A. Dionysos and Satyr. B. Two youths. The Lekanis N.M. 19427 (fragment) is closely related to the Lekanis Leningrad C. R. 1881, pi. 3. Their style and theme are the same and that is the reason we call the artist «the Lenigrand Painter». He decorated both Lekanides in the beginning of the second quarter of the 4th century and is a fellower of Dinos Painter. The base of the Nuptial Lebes N.M. 19462 is the last good specimen of the calligraphy of the first half of the 4th c. A. Maid in peplos holding two boxes. B. Two young women in himation. About 340 B.C. The artist of calyx - krater N.M. 19463 closely follows the technique of the Erotostasia painter. A. Dionysiac scene. B. Three youths. 340 - 330 B.C. The painter of the Nuptial Lebes N.M. 19440 (fragment) follows the Apollonia Group, but his style is much better. A young woman between two Erotes. About 330 B.C. The Pelike N.M. 18748 represents the last phase of the attic red-figure vase - painting. A. Amazon and a horse. B. Two youths. A list of the ornaments of L.C. Kraters follows and a chapter about the decoration of the small size pelike. In another chapter is discussed the problem which set the representations of vases like Pelike N.M. 18748. In the last chapter the author tries to attempt a chronological and stylistic position of these vases in the vase - painting of the 4th c. B.C.
