Terracotta cinerary urn


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 170

The inscription, THANA : VIPINEI : RANAZUNIA : CREICESA, attests that this is the ash urn of Thana Vipinei Ranazunia, wife of Creice. The last word, CREICESA, is written vertically on the lower left frame of the main panel. The standardized battle scene on the container demonstrates that the subject on that part of the urn often has no apparent connection with the gender of the deceased.
