Other shapes

The majority of Athenian painted pottery shapes can be classified under the few headings employed here. There are however some that do not fit so neatly, and these may be grouped together, if only to give a flavour of the range of forms outside the standard core. A selection includes the following: lekanis/lekane, plate and epinetron.

Other painted shapes include:

  • bobbins
  • eggs
  • louteria
  • lydia
  • plaques
  • phormiskoi
  • stands
