This article aims at showing that on the Boston krater (Boston, Museum of Fine Arts 63. 1246) Agamemnon was portrayed wearing a finely decorated dress (rather than being trapped in the net described in the Aeschylean trilogy, as it is generally assumed). Such a representation recalls a lesser known mythical tradition, according to which Klytaimestra had weaved a robe without openings for the hands and the head and had offered it as a gift to Agamemnon (cp. Lycophron, Seneca, Dracontius).
