Thesus carrying off Helen. His friend Potroclus on the left. At the death of his father, Thesus became King of Attica and endowed his people with wise institutions. He united them in a single group, built a communal prytantium in Athens, divided the citizens into three classes, erected temples and instituted the Panatheneae. At the same time, he continued his wandering life of adventure. He accompanied Hercules on an expedition against the Amazons, took part in hunting the wild boar of Calydon and sailed with the Argonauts. Copy by Diana Webber, 2015.
