Large Greek Apulian oinochoe of spindle-shaped body with tubular neck and substantial trefoil rim. A slightly raised twofold handle arching from rim to shoulder.
Almost entirely covered with black glaze, lower body and underside of the flared foot reserved.
The red line running around the shoulder reminds of Attic pottery tradition.
