Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • cups - 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.
  • Early Archaic - Refers to the first phase of the Greek Archaic period, from around 660 BCE to around 580 BCE. It is characterized in sculpture by the creation of more large-scale stone sculpture than in earlier periods, and by a style that is close to the Egyptian prototypes. In vase painting it is characterized by the Black-figure method used to depict more naturalistic figures than those of the Orientalizing period.
  • Late Geometric - Refers to the most advanced phase of Geometric style, dating to the mid- and late eighth century BCE and appearing across a wide geographical area. It varied significantly in different locations, but in general it is characterized in vase painting by a sophistication in the representation of figures and animals, including the portrayal of recognizable mythological figures and narrative scenes. Sculpture from this period depicts a wide variety of animals and human figures that are stylized, but more naturalistic than in earlier art.
  • rim sherds - Fragments of a ceramic or glass vessel from just below the rim.
