Apulian Red-Figure Lekanis


Apulian Red-Figure Lekanis

An ancient Apulian Greek red-figure lidded lekanis, with a knobbed handle and laurel leaves around the lid.

Apulia, Magna Graecia, Southern Italy.
Ca. 340 - 330 BC.
Maximum width: 7 1/2 in. (19 cm).

The output and quality of the Greek colonial potters working in Apulia increased greatly following the Peloponnesian War when Attic exports fell off sharply. Apulian craftsmanship is an amalgamation of the Ionian (Athenian, Attic) conventions, and Doric (Western colonial Greek) styles, with a noticeable native Italian aesthetic.

Formerly in the N. R. collection, New York; acquired in Israel.
