Women weaving, Image adapted from a Black-figure lekythos, Attica 550 BC, by the Amasis Painter, "The two on the left fill a basket with yarn; the next two fold the finished cloths; one spins fine thread next to a woman combing wool into a basket; two others work together at a warp-weighted vertical loom; and the two on the right weigh out the balls of yarn" (Marilyn A. Katz ).
