Oinochoe in Black-on-red Ware

Oinochoe in Black-on-red Ware
Oinochoe in Black-on-red Ware
Cypro-Archaic I, 750 - 600 B.C.
Pottery
(61.33)

The shape and patterned decoration on this jug are normal for pottery in Black-on-red II (IV) ware. The representation of an animal is, however, unusual on Cypriote pottery of this period. Although single animals are known on the shoulders of a few other Black-on-red oinochoai, the neatly painted bull on the shoulder of this example is of outstanding quality.
