48.11.8 This shape was particularly popular at Agrigento, where many tombs contained one example (it is called 'brochetto attingitoio' or juglet for drawing liquids, comparable to the attic 'chous'): see especially Veder Greco, Contrada Mosè: 264 (tomb 3); Contrada Pezzino: 306 (tomb 582), 348 (tomb 238), 352 (tomb 779), 353 (tomb 1086), 354 (tombs 585 and 1147), and 355 (tomb 1225). Cf. also Lentini 61613/E (top half glossed) and 61569/B (smaller): Lagona 1973, 86-87 nos. 185 and 186, pl. 30. 2003.92.0398.jpg
50.4.19 The shape is nearly identical to that of a smaller lekythos from the Pantanello Necropolis at Metaponto, published by M. Elliott in Carter 1998, 2.684-85 SL10 (T 128-3), although the ribbing is more akin to that found on Pantanello SL9 (T 126-9). Cf. also Sicilian examples from Agrigento (especially AG 1331: de Miro 1962, 137, fig. 41c). See also 'comments' below. 2003.37.0082.jpg
