dc.description.abstract The Brandeis Lekythos is a fifth-century Athenian funerary vase within the teaching collection at Brandeis University. The ultimate goal of this thesis is to present the art historical and scientific analysis by which Brandeis University in collaboration with the ARCHEM project and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts were able to ascertain the vase’s authenticity. Furthermore, the intent is to show approximate date and ritualistic use of the Brandeis Lekythos. Before such a study may be performed, however, it is necessary to begin by relaying basic information about the evolution of the vase, its artistic formation, its relation to surrounding regions and ritualistic context. en_US
