Daunian Double-Spouted Askos

 

Daunian Double-Spouted Askos

An ancient Daunian double-spouted askos, each spout with an integral strainer, the body decorated with bands of geometric patterns, waves, vines and other decorative elements.

Daunia, Southern Italy.
Ca. 3rd century BC.
Height: 6 1/4 in. (15.9 cm).
Intact.

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. Metropolitan Museum of Art, inv. no. 06.1021.247; University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, inv. no. MS1591.

Formerly in the J. S. collection, Pennsylvania, acquired in Brussels in 2013; previously in a Belgian private collection, acquired before 1985.
