Lot Essay


For vessels of various sizes carved with low relief decoration see J. Stubbe Ostergaard, Imperial Rome, Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, 1996, pp. 228-231, nos 130-132. The volute krater on p. 230 preserves a lower decorative section with tongue pattern. On this examples the lower section of the vessel shows the remains of a foliate pattern beneath the main figurative scene.
