Description
This elegant amphora, designed for the storage of liquids, has a wide flaring lip and a narrow neck and base. The obverse depicts a dancing draped female clutching a mirror in her left hand and a tambourine with attached fillet in her right. A fillet also hangs from her left arm and a further example is displayed in the field. The figure is flanked on either side by a palmette complex. A band of laurel and bead-and-reed motifs run around the lip, followed by palmettes on the neck, tongues on the shoulder and a wave motif beneath the figure. The reverse depicts a female head in profile wearing a sakkos. - (AM.0027)
