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.
