An ancient red and cream colored Daunian krateriskos with biconical body, flared rim and conical foot . Two looped handles attach to the rim. Red bands encircle the body and foot. A row of slanted teardrops forms around the shoulder.
Daunia, Southern Italy.
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.
Formerly in a Pennsylvania private collection
