Late Corinthian Period
Broad-bottomed Oinochoe. a) The oinochoe; b) tricorn lid. The bottom of a) is unglazed. The body is covered with red glaze, a very large part of which has peeled away, so that the only dceocration visible is the incised tongue pattern radiating from the base of the neck. Possibly the body was without figured decoration, all solid glaze. Broad strap handle, shoulder to lip. Trefoil lip which lid fits exactly. Lid has central knob.
