Source note : From

Content : A detail of its handle is shown next to vessel 4. The handle of vessel 5 is directly behind its body, at a right angle to the spout. The dotted-line detail shows the handle's shape, size and position in relation to the jug. Vessel number 3 has a line drawing next to it showing the woman's face painted on its other side.

Content : A hydria was a vessel for holding and pouring water. An askos (Greek for "tube") or guttus was a smaller container for holding and pouring oil. These latter vessels usually had small, narrow spouts that sometimes doubled as handles. Apulia is a region of southeastern Italy which traded with Greece and was heavily influenced by its culture.

Content: Printed below image: "1-2. Hydrien. 3-5. Giessgefässe." [1-2. Hydrias (water vessels). 3-5. Pourers/sprinklers.] Written under image: "1. Attic hydria, 4th century B.C. 3. Apulian askos. 4. Small Attic guttus or oil flask. 5. Apulian guttus."
