  • Terracotta hydria: kalpis (water jar), ca. 510 b.c.; Archaic, red–figure
    Greek, Attic
    H. 13 15/16 in. (35.4 cm)
    Fletcher Fund, 1956 (56.171.31)

    This vase was made at a time when the red-figure technique was becoming established and the relation between glazed and unglazed areas was a matter of considerable experimentation. The concept of a panel goes back to the early sixth century B.C., but the easy curves of the shape and the band between the handles indicate a different age.
