Notes
Content: Apulia is a region in southern Italy. In ancient times, it was heavily influenced by contact with Greek colonists and traders before being conquered by the Romans. A "lekythos" (plural "lekythoi") was a vessel used for storing oil. It had a narrow neck with a vertical handle attached.
Source note: From
Content: Three vessels are illustrated. A detail of the faces on the jug at far left appears to its right. Above the lekythos are details of its handle (above) and "flower petal" painted design on its uppermost surface (below). The detail to the right of the rightmost jug shows a view from above, looking down on its handle (cross-sectioned) and spout.
