Aphrodite, Pan and Eros

This group goes under the name the slipper-slapper group and it depicts Pan who is pushing his luck with Aphrodite (notice how her stance is close to the one of the Knidian Venus, but the mood very different) while Eros is (smilingly) gently pushing Pan away . It was found at the house of a merchant association at Delos and dates to ca 100 Bc (which we know thanks to an inscription).
