1 - 2 weeks availability
This publication showcases a selection of vessels from the Ashmolean's remarkable collection. The majority of the pots illustrated were made in Corinth or Athens and exported in antiquity to Italy and Sicily, where they served as grave-offerings. The decoration of figurative scenes - ceramic analogues of designs for textiles or silverware - gives a remarkable insight into Greek religion, warfare, sport and everyday life.
Michael Vickers is Reader in Archaeology and Senior Assistant Keeper in the Department of Antiquities in the Ashmolean Museum, and a Senior Research Fellow of Jesus College, Oxford.
