- Apulian - Refers to a pottery style that developed in Apulia in the fifth and fourth centuries BCE and was manifest in plain and ornate versions. The plain version is usually characterized by smaller vases with simpler decorative compositions, fewer figures depicted, and themes that are Dionysiac, genre scenes, or simple female heads. In the ornate version, the vases are larger, more colors are used, and designs are more ornate, including floral and geometric patterns, and mythological and funerary subjects.
- 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.
- stamnoi - Ancient Greek vessels for the storage of liquids usually having an ovoid body with high shoulders, a short neck, wide mouth, two side handles, and sometimes a cover. Generally smaller than amphorae.
