Birth of Fulfens (Dionysus)

I do love a mirror (I think its the round intimate composition form I love really, coins, gems, lamps, I’ll take’m all).  Anyway.  In one of my classes yesterday the birth of Dionysus came up and then I stumbled on this lovely Etruscan mirror today.  So I’m posting.  To drawings of the same object .  Top is from Millin 1811.
