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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Middle Corinthian - Refers to an intermediate phase of Corinthian pottery style, dating from around 600 BCE to around 575 BCE. It is characterized by apparent mass production of pots, using painted designs with a smaller repertory of clumsier animals than in the preceding phase, new animal poses, less crowded designs between figures, and the use of dots to echo the contours of the animals.
  • 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.
