DescriptionThis oil flask (ovoid aryballos) is painted early in the development of the black-figure technique. Most of the decoration is shown in silhouette, but there are a few examples of incised details on the figures. The shoulder is decorated with two running dogs, and on the belly is a frieze of other animals - 3 dogs and a lion. It is dated to the Middle Protocorinthian period and was attributed to the Madonelle Painter by Neeft.
