Terracotta jar


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 151

The jar, the jug (2004.363.3), and the kernos (2004.363.1) displayed nearby in this gallery were found together in 1829 in a tomb on Melos by Captain Copeland, a British naval officer. In 1857 his widow gave the objects to Eton College, where they have remained until coming to The Metropolitan Museum of Art on loan in 1996.
