Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • bodies - Those parts of containers that enclose the contents, as distinguished from accessory components such as covers, handles, and applied decoration.
  • Proto-Corinthian - Refers to the Orientalizing phase of Greek art in Corinth, from about 720 to 620 BCE, which is roughly contemporary with the Proto-Attic phase in Athens. The Proto-Corinthian pottery style developed in Corinth in the eighth century BCE and lasted until around 640 BCE. It is characterized by vessels that are usually cups, jugs, or perfume pots, with decoration that is at first geometric and later includes animal and human figures, with occasional Eastern curvilinear ornamentation. The later examples are distinctive for the rounded contours and animation of the figures, painted in outline and silhouette, with added designs in incision and white color.
  • sherds - Limited to fragments of pottery or glass.
