- Style and culture of the region of Attica. For culture particular to the capital of Attica, Athens, use "Athenian."
- Refers to a style of Greek vase painting that developed from the Geometric and Orientalizing styles. It appeared in Corinth around 720 BCE, flourished in Attica by 600 BCE, and was found in Sparta, eastern Greece, and elsewhere, until the Red-figure style gradually replaced it in the late sixth century BCE. The style is characterized by a particular technique, which is characterized by the use of a refined slip, a two-stage firing process, and sintering to create black figures in silhouette on a red ground. Details were incised into the black figures or applied in purple or white pigment.
- Open bowl-shaped vessels, used chiefly for drinking, often having one handle, but sometimes two handles or none, generally on a low foot-ring; also includes similar bowl-shaped vessels, generally without handles, resting on a stem and supported by a spreading foot. Occasionally made with a lid.
- Mythical female beings having snakes for hair, and whose look turned the beholder into stone.
- Ancient Greek drinking vessels in the form of a broad, shallow bowl set on a high foot or pedestal with two upcurving handles.
kylikes type A
- A type of kylix characterized by a deep bowl, a lip that is not offset, and a short stem and foot. This form dominated black-figure vase painting after about 540 BCE but also continued in red-figure. The ordinary type A kylix is an eye cup.
