 Taming the Winds
Zephyrus, god of the West Wind, is known in the artistic record of antiquity mainly on account of his romantic attachments, which are somewhat more numerous than those of his brother Boreas; his lovers include the Spartan youth Hyacinthus, the goddess of the Rainbow, Iris, and the goddess of flowers, Chloris-Flora.
Zephyrus enjoys a brief period of popularity in the late Archaic-early Classical (490-460) phase of Attic red-figure pottery, the period that Dover identifies as part of the principal time when scenes of homosexual courtship, pursuit and rape became standard iconographic fare (260), outstripping equivalent heterosexual depictions.
Zephyrus literally flies after him, his body horizontal in the air, his arms outstretched in entreaty - possibly this pose owes something to the ‘Douris’ cups of the preceding decade, which were presumably very popular, given the fact that we have three very similar images.
