51.7.5 A.C. Smith. The squat lekythos, albeit one with broader proportions, is favored by the painters in the Cleveland Group. Further this vase indicates other characteristics of the work attributed to that group: columnar drapery on standing women, beaded sphendone and jewellery, and white, blobby rocks used as seats or supports. The treatment of subsidiary ornament and the palmette under the handle are also similar, although the Cleveland Group preferred the 1 1/2 superimposed palmettes on such squat lekythoi. For a similar single palmette and other related decoration see also 26/68b and other works by the closely related Group of the Trieste Askoi, which, like the Reading squat lekythos, are plain beneath the main zone (whereas the Cleveland Group usually includes a wave band beneath the main zone). 2008.99.0557.jpg

REDMG:1951.144.1 McPhee and Trendall 1987, IVA/118, 127-28: The cuttlefish, with body outlined in white and decorated with black horizontal stripes, two large black eyes, and a cluster of tentacles (some white), is typical of a particular painter denoted by the Group of Karlsruhe 66/140. Further characteristics of this Group evidenced on the Reading plate are the bream's pectoral fin, which takes the form of an open fan with vertical cross-strokes; and the use of a mussel as filler; the decoration of the central depression with a rosette of the 'ice cream cone' type, surrounded by a wave border; the laurel wreath on the overhanging rim. 2005.99.0120.jpg
