Bronze hydria (water jar)


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 155

This hydria is said to come from Galaxidi, a site in central Greece that has yielded many bronzes of the Classical period; the larges number are in the British Museum. However it may have served previously, the last use of this example was as a cinerary urn; it was found with the bones still inside.
