Corinthian Aryballos

An ancient Corinthian spherical aryballos, an oil vessel, decorated with an abstracted lotus blossom.

Corinth.
Middle Corinthian, ca. 600 - 575 BC.
Height: 3 in. (7.5 cm).
Intact.

The production of pottery from the northern Peloponnesian city of Corinth began around 720 BC and continued until about 550 BC. Corinthian clay is much more pale than the iron rich red clay of Athens in Attica that later supplanted it as the main Greek export ware in the Mediterranean.

Formerly in a New York private collection, acquired in London in the 1970s or earlier.
