The shape, known archaeologically as an oinochoe shape 6, is characterized by the beaked spout and the low carination on the body. It is a relatively rare shape that appears in Attic pottery during the first and third quarters of the fifth century B.C. In pottery, black-glazed examples outnumber those with figural decoration.
