I. TWO LEKYTHIFrontispiece

Photo Mansell & Co. The larger, a white Attic lekythus (funeral oil-vase) with polychrome painting of early, severe style (c. 460). The smaller, a red-figured lekythus of the earlier and still somewhat restrained 'beautiful style,' which afterwards became fanciful and fantastic; date c. 450. In British Museum.

II. LATE-MYCENAEAN VASES (c. 1200)8

Photo Mansell & Co. One has the polypus decoration; the other is an example of the characteristic Mycenaean false-necked amphora ('Bügel-kanne'). In the latter vessel the neck, to which the handles are attached, has no aperture. The spout is set in the shoulder of the vessel, and in the picture it stands in front of the 'false neck' and hides it. In British Museum.

III. AN ATTIC HYDRIA OF THE MIDDLE BLACK-FIGURED PERIOD (c. 550)218

Photo Mansell & Co. Found at Vulci. Maidens fetching water from a fountain. Similar vases are inscribed with the names of the fountains Kallikrene or Kallirrhoë. This vase has the names of some of the maidens with the adjective καλή ('beautiful') appended, as frequently occurs in vase-paintings. On the lower part of the vase is depicted Heracles strangling the Nemean lion. In British Museum.
