Apulian Xenon Ware Kylix

An ancient Apulian Xenon Ware kylix the tondo over painted in six's technique with a scene with a youthful male head in profile.

Apulia, Magna Graecia, Southern Italy.
Ca. 4th century BC.
Width: 9 in. (23 cm).
Intact.

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 collection of Jerome Eisenberg, New York.
