DescriptionThis jug (broad-based oinochoe) is decorated in black-figure style with an animal frieze on the body and on the shoulder. The animals include birds, sirens, panthers and a goat. The oinochoe still has its small trefoil lid. It is dated to the end of the Middle Corinthian period and was related to the work of the Ampersand Painter according to Hayes.
