Greek Ionian Type Kylix, South Italy, circa 550 BC

Black-glazed kylix of Ionian shape showing a rounded bowl with high steep rim and slightly tilted handles attached on the belly.

The interior shows concentric lines in applied red.

The present example may be a South Italian Greek colonial product, imitating Rhodian and Attic types of the first half of the 6th century BC.

Intact, excellent quality and condition. The black glaze speckled brown in places and keeping shiny areas.

W. over handles 15.7 cm (6.2 in)
