589 Pyxis

  1. The Judgment of the most beautiful woman by Paris.
  1. In the centre is Paris, sitting on a rock. To his right is Hermes, the messenger of the gods, holding   a caduceus. To Paris' left is an old man, possibly  his teacher.  Aphrodite, accompanied by Eros. In the centre is Athena looking at Hera, who carries the sceptre of kingship and a crown to identify her. Paris has been asked to judge which of the three is the most beautiful woman. He chooses Aphrodite. As a result, Hera denies him the kingship of Troy; Athena denies him success in war (against the Greeks); but Aphrodite awards him success in love, with Helen.
