Terracotta oinochoe (jug)


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

The trefoil oinochoe, with three-lobed mouth, is a basic shape in both Etruscan and Greek pottery. This example, with its virtuosic carination, is an Etruscan variant. The neck resembles those of some Nicosthenic neck-amphorae.
