The graceful form and restrained linear decoration of this vessel make it as appealing to the modern eyes as it no doubt was to the ancient age that created it. Looking at its elegant contours, we do not question that its now-vanished contents--probably olive oil or wine--were of the finest quality. Today, its timeless beauty holds only the seductive perfume of imagination. One whiff sends us traveling backward through time into a mysterious, long-vanished world. - (CK.0035)
