 From the circle of the Kantharos Group circa 320 to 310 BC.   South Italy

An imposing vessel with lavish decoration, twin handles on shoulder and with a flared rim and long stem disc foot.  The body of this amphora is densely decorated with scrolls, palmettes, vines, and flowers. The obverse depicts a female's head emerging from a patera. The reverse is a single female head in profile adorned with sakos.   A lovely example for an elite member of society of the time.
