Terracotta aryballos in the form of a helmeted head
A helmeted warrior’s head makes up the body of this small mold-made terracotta aryballos, likely used to hold perfumed oil. The painted and incised surface is very well preserved, including a prominent gorgoneion on the metopon of the Ionian helmet. The warrior’s wide eyes and dark beard are visible through the gaps in the helmet.
