Lot Essay

Corinth was a major pottery center during the Orientalizing period and its wares were exported throughout the Mediterranean. For a nearly identical example found at Corinth, see fig. 55d in J.N. Coldstream, Geometric Greece and for another, with crosshatching in the handle zone instead of stylized birds, found in Almunecar, Spain, see no. 168 in J. Boardman, Early Greek Vase Painting.
