This askos in the form of a reclining dog is related to the Magenta Ware flasks displayed nearby (06.1021.265, 07.286.131). Its classification as an example of Magenta Ware pottery, however, is prevented by the lack of any traces of the deep red pigment, which normally characterizes the technique. The name inscribed on the base of the askos is attested in inscriptions from Boeotia in central Greece, and may perhaps point to the place of its manufacture.
