Detail showing play with cat

Recently, on February 17, we are celebrating the day of the cat. On this occasion, in the photo we can see a detail showing the play with a cat. The painting was made on a dish called “hydria” used to carry water. The object dates to the V- IV century BCE and is located in the Museo Nazionale Palazzo Jatta, Ruvo di Puglia.

Residents of these areas were descendants of Greeks and obtained the rights of citizens of the Roman republic only as a result of reforms after the so-called war with allies in the 90s of 1st century BCE, perhaps together with the inhabitants of Brundisium, in 87 BCE.
