Ancient Mediterranean Ceramics

 

Apulian Volute-Krater

Volute-Krater, Apulian, ca. 340-330 B.C.; terracotta

This small collection of about 30 distinctive ancient ceramic vases represents different cultures of the Italian Peninsula – from the Villanovan, through Etruscan and Daunian, to Apulian (an Iron and Bronze Age Greek colony in the boot heel region of southern Italy after the fifth century B.C.)

The ancient Mediterranean collection is not currently on display.
