Title:   Pyxis with Lid
ΤΙΤΛΟΣ:   Πυξίδα με πώμα
Category:   Pottery
Description:   Deep rounded pyxis on slightly flaring ring foot; the rim flanged inside to receive the lid and the flange pierced by two pairs of tie holes. The foot and lower body glazed, also the flange and a zone below the rim. A wide reserved zone at the shoulder and below, divided by triple horizontal lines (double line at the top) into a wide zone between two narrow ones. In the wide central zone, a band of hatched key pattern, with vertical dot rows in the bays between the keys. A zigzag in the upper narrow one; a row of short parallel verticals in the lower. The knob handle of the conical lid missing. Two pairs of tie holes pierced through near its plain edge, corresponding to those of the flange of the pyxis; no marks to indicate corresponding pairs. The lid glazed outside except for a zone below the handle decorated with tooth pattern; a single line below, and a triple line above (probably double, if the glaze at the upper edge continued up to the handle).
Solid, rather dull black glaze with reddish-brown mottling, continuous between pyxis rim and lid, suggesting that they were painted (or fired) with the lid in position.
