Greece, Hellenistic Period, ca. 2nd. century BC.

A utilitarian, buff vessel with a wide, well-defined shoulder, a round, slightly flared foot, a conical neck, a thick mouth, and a ribbed strap handle. The lagynos is an ancient form designed to hold oil (in smaller form) or, as this one, wine. This is a beautiful example of a rare form.

Height: 17,2 cm. and 18,6 cm. wide.

Condition: Superb.

Ex. German Private Collection, 1955-1990.
