  • Attic - Style and culture of the region of Attica. For culture particular to the capital of Attica, Athens, use "Athenian."
  • Classical - Refers to an ancient Greek style and period that begins around 480 BCE, when the Greek city-states defeated the Persian invaders, and ends around 323 BCE, with the death of Alexander the Great. It is characterized by the rebuilding of cities after the Persian wars, the flourishing of philosophy, drama, architecture, sculpture, painting, and the other arts. In the visual arts, it is known for the mastery of the human form and sophistication of architectural design.

Occasionally made with a lid.
  • repairing - Restoring to a whole by replacing a part or putting together what is torn or broken, or otherwise restoring to sound condition.
  • skyphoi - A type of drinking vessel in the shape of a deep cup, usually with two horizontal handles attached to the lip and a small integral foot. In all-black or unglossed plain wares the skyphos was the most common type of cup.
  • staples - Double-pointed, U-shaped pieces of metal used to attach separate articles together.
