Section Number:   ΓΓ 737
Title:   Jug
Category:   Pottery
Description:   Fragments of bottom, wall and neck, and top of handle missing; restored in plaster. Shape resembles that of the tall variety of shoulderless lekythoi, but there is no foot. The wall draws in at the bottom to provide a resting surface within which the floor is recessed. The body is rather sack-like with its maximum diameter quite low. There is no true shoulder, and the very narrow neck with plain flaring lip and drip ring rise from the body. Vertical strap handle rises from a point about three-quarters of the distance from the base to the neck; handle probably joined neck rather than lip, as restored (Cf. P 16038, ΓΓ 720).
Brittle reddish clay with bits, fired gray at core. Grayish-brown slip. Interior of lip, exterior of handle, two horizontal bands below handle and a broad horizontal band above bottom in dull black glaze-paint. The upper of the two bands below the handle is marked out above and below by narrow bands of red.
Banded Lekythos.
