REDMG:1953.25.57 Cf. similar vessels found in Sicily, esp. an identical piece found at Camarina, inv. 24878: MonAnt 1954 (1990) 113, pl. LXXII (Passo Marinaro tomb 1197.4); and a miniature amphora (same size and shape as ours) found at Agrigento: AG 22594 in Veder Greco 332, tomb 936.
REDMG:1964.1622 For shape RM.25.53.23. For such tapering 'cucumber', survivals of the Late Corinthian Archaic type see Corinth 13, 140-41, fig. 15, e.g. Corinth T1243: Corinth 13, 223 no. 281-5, pl. 40. Typically Corinthian foot. Cf. also (banded) Attic olpai: Agora 12, pl. 12. Many jugs of similar shape (local imitations?) were found in Sicily, e.g. Agrigento, although many without distinct bases. For comparanda, however, see Veder Greco 295 (an example with a slightly upcurving handle, from Contrada Pezzino, tomb 1316). 2004.99.0150.jpg
