Jug

Currently not on display

Information

Round-mouthed oinochoe (jug), handle not present. The body is intact although badly corroded; against the outer side of the mouth are traces of a flat plate with two crudely placed rivets, all that remains of the high flung handle (note the rectangular recess in rim to fit the handle). The round mouthed oinochoe is another characteristic vessel of Late Archaic wine service, often found in tomb groups with Schnabelkannen (pitchers). These, too, were apparently made in Vulci and widely exported from the late 6th to the mid-5th c BC.
