Corinthian Geometric Aryballos
An ancient Corinthian Greek miniature pottery pyriform aryballos, an oil or fragrance vessel, with rings around the body.
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.
