dc.description Greek, Korinthian, c. 580 – 570 B.C.E.
dc.description Terracotta white-ground, black-figure aryballos with original polychrome surviving on the front and left, but heavily faded on the back and right. The face depicts an illustration of a padded dancer with florette patterns decorating the surrounding space, both typical of the seventh and early sixth centuries. The piece’s size, along with archaeological and historical precedent, suggests that it was used to hold either to hold a woman’s perfume or an athlete’s body oil, the vessel in that case residing in a gymnasium.
