This vessel is similar to a type of pottery called a stemless cup, having two horizontal handles and a low stemless foot. Three perfectly uniform red bands decorate the interior, radiating inwards in diminishing sizes. The lip, which extends in a ridge slightly beyond the sides, is painted in red. Two thick red lines encircle the body just below the handles, while two other lines are around the base. The Greek colonists who settled in Magna Graecia (the pre-Roman name for southern Italy) broke away from traditions of Classical Greece to create their own style of ceramics. Certain wares, such as this example, are characterized by minimal decoration precisely applied on a buff background to form an elegantly simple bowl. - (PF.5385)
