NUSearch, Northwestern University Library's search tool, can be used to find books and other library resources. To search for books, it is best to click on the "Books, Images, & More" tab; otherwise, you are likely to be overwhelmed with articles.
Greek vases AND symposium
(symposi* OR banquet*) AND greek AND (vases OR pottery)
(athen* OR attic*) AND (pottery OR vases) AND paint*
The advance search may be useful in certain instances: for example, you may want to limit your search to subject headings or other field. For example, searching "Rome" in the subject field, and "grain" anywhere, produces a much tighter search than simply entering <Rome AND Grain>.
It's also possible to click on "browse search" and browse titles, authors, or subject heading strings. Some possibly useful subject headings:
Symposium (Classical Greek drinking party)
Archilochus [and names of other poets]
Greece -- Social Life and Customs
