Side B, a crouching panther, with a paw raised. Black slip covers the rest of the body, handle and spout. From Emily Moore's Paper: Shape The shape of the vase is that of an askos. The characteristic shape of an askos is a small, shallow, and round container with a flat bottom and convex top. Connected to the body are a handle, which arches over the length the body, and an angled spout. Askos P105 fits this general description. The vase is flat on the bottom, with a slightly concave indentation in the center and around the bottom of the vessel there is a small ridge. The lower body curves out to the shoulder, at which point, the shape of the top of the body becomes a small convex dome. The handle is slightly crooked, leaning toward Side B, and is more in the shape of a sloped arch than a perfect semicircle. The places where the potter joined the handle and spout to the body are not well blended. There is also an abrupt dent on the top of the handle where it is joined near the spout, possibly from the process of attaching the two together. The spout is short and the mouth flares out at the end only slightly. It is worth noting that the top lip of the spout is flat, not rounded, as on many other examples. Technique The decoration of the askos is executed in the red-figure technique. With the exceptions of the bottom of the body and the rim of the spout, the entire body is glazed. However, the black glaze was poorly applied in several places on the lower sides of the body, below the shoulder, and the red clay underneath shows through. The inside of the spout is also glazed. There does not appear to be any clear relief outline of the painted decoration. The creatures on Sides A has relief lines on one of the ears, the mouth, the toes on all three paws, and the lines and spots on the creature’s body. On Side B, the creature has relief lines near the mouth, as well as the lines on one of the ears, the toes on all three paws, and the lines and spots on the creature’s body. There are several instances on both sides of the vessel where the unglazed area exceeds or does not completely fill in its clearly defined black relief line. The unglazed area appears to exceed its relief line slightly on the three paws of the creature on Side A, but more so on the three paws of the creature on Side B. The unglazed area extends above the horizontal line connecting the three lower lines that define the toes. In other areas, the unglazed area seems to not completely fill the area that the relief lines have outlined. On both Sides A and B, one of the two ears has a black relief line next to it to which the unglazed area does not reach. On Side A, the black relief line is vertical and the unglazed fill angles in from this line. On Side B, the black relief line is in the shape of a backwards “J” and the unglazed fill does not extend to this line.
