Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • Corinthian type skyphoi - Refers to a type of skyphos consisting of a thin-walled cup with delicate handles and a ring foot. The form originated in Corinth.
  • Early Classical - Refers to the beginning of the ancient Greek Classical period and style, from around 480 BCE to around 450 BCE. In sculpture it is distinguished from the earlier Archaic style in that the human figure is portrayed with increased naturalism, including increased subtlety of facial expressions and contrapposto in standing figures. In vase painting there are regional variations, but in general there is increased mastery of the human figure and drapery. In architecture, the aesthetics of the late sixth and early fifth centuries are continued and refined.
  • Late Corinthian - Refers to the late phase of Corinthian pottery style, dating from around 575 BCE to around 425 BCE, after which Corinth was no longer a major exporter of pottery. It is characterized by continued mass production and repetitive designs with little detail, as well as innovative work created with apparent care. Painting on these vessels typically includes elaborate ornaments arranged in formal patterns, a lively animation of design, and animals with attenuated proportions. During this phase animal scenes were gradually replaced by more scenes of human figures.
  • sherds - Limited to fragments of pottery or glass.
  • 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.
