Daunian Kyathos


Daunian Kyathos

An ancient Daunian horn-handled kyathos, a wine ladle, with geometric decorations.

Daunia, Southern Italy.
Ca. 700 BC.
Height: 3 5/8 in. (9.2 cm).

Despite the popularity of Greek and later South-Italian Greek figural pottery, Daunian ware continued in its localized production to the end of the 4th century BC. Daunian ware is more rustic compared to Black-Glazed and Red-Figure ware with which it is contemporary.

cf.: M. Mazzei, La Daunia Antica, (Milan, 1984), pg. 175, pl. 218

Formerly in a Swiss private collection, acquired between 1960 and 1980.
