Lot 0032
Magna Graecia, South Italic Colonies, Campania, ca. 360 to 320 BCE. A wheel-thrown kylix with a squat foot, a wide, shallow body, and a pair of applied parabolic handles. The majority of the exterior is covered in a black glaze, though the time-worn appearance now exhibits a dark-brown color. Beneath the foot are three Greek letters, "ACN (Alpha Gamma Nu)" perhaps an abbreviation of the potter's name. A lovely example from ancient Campania! Size: 6.5" W x 1.875" H (16.5 cm x 4.8 cm).
