Terracotta footed dish


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

The local pottery of Lydia (in present-day western Turkey) is known primarily from excavations at Sardis, the region’s capital city. Sardis was an important center of cross-cultural interactions between the Greeks on the Ionian coast to the west and the Phrygians to the east. The footed dish, a Lydian specialty, was made in a local monochrome style referred to as "grey ware," which flourished during the seventh and early sixth centuries B.C.
