  • Description

    Exterior, obverse and reverse, combat between spectators

    Compared with the Little Master cups—the Lip cups and Band cups—that predominated in Athens during the middle of the sixth century B.C., this example shows a deeper bowl that permitted a more expansive scene on the exterior. Such kylikes became established during the third quarter of the century, thanks especially to the innovations of the potter and painter Exekias.

  • Provenance

    Said to be from Tarentum
