Rhyton in a greyish white terracotta with a globular body. The body stands on four small legs and is surmounted by a small head with a wide flared mouth on its back, all characteristics reminiscent of a ram. A blue grey slip covers this pottery. An exceptional state of preservation.
This rhyton was moulded in a very fine clay and covered with a delicate pale grey slip, making it an object with a delicate aesthetic. Its attractive, smooth form has a rounded body and a small neck, its four small feet recalling those of a stylish ram. Rhyta were used as vessels in libation rituals and they are typical of Minoan, Mycenaean, Classical Greek and Achaemenid Persian cultures.
