[English version] (ἡ λουτροφόρος). Behälter für bzw. Träger/-in von Badewasser. Von Demosth. or. 44,18 als Grabaufsatz erwähnt, der den unverheirateten Status des Verstorbenen beweise. Erst spätant. und ma. Autoren gehen auf die L. als Hochzeitsgefäß und die ant. Sitte ein, den unverheiratet Verstorbenen ( ágamoi) ein Denkmal ( mnḗma) in Form einer L. zu errichten, was offenbar den Sinn eines symbolischen Nachvollzugs von Brautbad und Hochzeit (Hochzeitsbräuche) hatte. Die L. wird hier einerseits als Gefäß (Hesych. s.v.; Eust. zu Hom. Il. 23,…

[English version] (ἡ ὑδρία). Dreihenkliger Wasserkrug mit enger Mündung, wie er inschr. in der Troilos-Szene des Klitias-Kraters (Florenz, AM) als H. bezeichnet ist. Die Form kommt schon in der FH-Keramik und auf myk. Tontafeln von Pylos vor (dort mit der Bezeichnung ka-ti). Die ältere Kugelform wurde im 6. Jh. v.Chr., nun auch in Bronze und Silber, durch die gestreckte Schulter-H. und etwas später die “Kalpis” mit durchlaufendem Profil abgelöst (Gefäße Abb. B 11-12).

Potters

(912 words)

Author(s): Scheibler, Ingeborg (Krefeld)
[German version] I. Introduction, origins, social position The potter (κεραμεύς/ kerameús, Lat. figulus) carried out his artistic work at the potter's wheel and in the creation of clay patrices (prototypes), models and sculptural ornamentation, though the profession included production processes such as mining and preparing the clay, painting, firing and selling the products. Despite at times enjoying good economic circumstances, the potter’s position in society remained modest; in Athens he was ranked amongst the thêtes , zeugîtai or metics ( métoikos

Pottery trade

(535 words)

Author(s): Scheibler, Ingeborg (Krefeld)
[German version] In Antiquity, manufacturers of simple utilitarian pottery generally met only the local demand of their region, while finer, decorated ceramics were also intended for the transregional market. However, the latter could also stimulate the export of poorer goods. The distribution of pottery finds in many cases indicates corresponding trade links, but there are also other factors to consider: the extended find radius of Mycenaean pottery is more a reflection of the presence of Mycenae…

Pyxis

(244 words)

Author(s): Scheibler, Ingeborg (Krefeld)
[German version] (ἡ πυξίς; hē pyxís). Box, round container with a lid; the Hellenistic name is derived from πύξος/ pýxos (‘box tree wood’), from which pyxides were often fashioned; the older Attic name is probably κυλιχνίς/ kylichnís. Pyxides are predominantly preserved as ceramics, more rarely made of wood, alabaster, metal or ivory. Among other things, pyxides were used for storing cosmetics and jewellery, so they were part of the life of women, the preferred motive in the red-figured style being portrayals of women's rooms; the…

Kylix

(303 words)

Author(s): Scheibler, Ingeborg (Krefeld)
[German version] (ἡ κύλιξ; hē kýlix). General ancient term for a wine goblet; mentioned in inscriptions are both goblets and skyphoi as well as flat drinking bowls. As a technical term, kylix is today only used for the latter. As a bowl, made of clay, with high foot and two horizontal handles, the kylix originated in the 6th cent. BC, probably derived from Laconian examples. It could be handled particularly well when lying down; it is no coincidence that it follows Oriental banquet customs. Early forms from the 8th and 7th cents., with a low foot,…

[German version] (ὁ or τὸ κέρνος; ho or tò kérnos).

Choes pitchers [CP]

(153 words)

Author(s): Scheibler, Ingeborg (Krefeld)
[German version] Type three wine pitchers ( Pottery, shapes and types of;  Chuos), used in Athens in drinking competitions on the day of Choes during the  Anthesteria. Not firmly identified with clay pitchers of similar size painted with freely chosen motifs. More easily differentiated are the small CP (5-15 cm high) produced in great numbers c. 400 BC. These bore images of children, pointing to sources that suggest the Choes as marking an important transition point in children's lives (IG II/III2 13139, 1368 l. 127-131). Some feast scenes, moreover, point to rites involv…

Vase painters

(697 words)

Author(s): Scheibler, Ingeborg (Krefeld)
[German version] The collective term 'vases' for Greek painted pottery (II. A.) as a special sub-genre of ceramics characterized by its often rich decoration emerged in the 18th cent. when the first vasi antichi were discovered in Campania and Etruria. Since their decoration was the task of the potter, no ancient word exists for the profession of vase painters (VP), although they could mark their work with the signature ἔγραψεν/ égrapsen ('has painted'). The first signatures of VP appear on early archaic, Cycladic and Corinthian pottery. In Athens, the earliest example is Sophil…

Od. 1,110), as well as in sacrificial rites (Hom. Il. 3,269) and religious festivals (Hdt. 1,51).

(150 words)

Author(s): Scheibler, Ingeborg (Krefeld)
[German version] (ὁ ψυκτήρ; ho psyktḗr). Vessel made of clay or bronze for keeping wine cool. Occasionally double-walled craters and amphoras served this purpose in the 6th cent. BC. In about 530 BC a mushroom-shaped psykter was invented in Athens (Pottery, shapes and types of, ill. C 8) and was subsequently manufactured in numerous red-figure workshops (Oltus, Euphronius [2], Euthymides). Its earlier forms are considered to be black-figured jugs and amphoras with cylindrical hollow feet. The style continued until c. 470 BC (Pan painter). Pictorial representations most com…
