Corinthian Aryballos

 

Corinthian Aryballos

An ancient Greek Corinthian spherical aryballos (olive oil vessel) decorated with two panthers on either side of a boar.

Corinth.
Middle Corinthian, ca. 575 - 550 BC.
Height: 3 in. (7.6 cm).

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 Jersey private collection, previously with Charles Ede Ltd., London; before that in a Dutch private collection, acquired in the late 19th century.
