Tanım

Nine pieces from a small kotyle, some joining. Exterior: dot-cluster rosette of added white in the dark handle zone of A. The color of the glaze changes from dark chocolate brown in the handle zone to orange-red on the body. A line of added white is placed approximately at the change. On the base is a reserved area broken by two thin lines of glaze immediately above the tips of the rays. The rays are thin, their bases are spaced a medium distance apart and rest on a narrow line of glaze. Below this is a reserved line. The foot ring is glazed. A wide band of glaze appears on the slope beneath the foot. Interior glazed. Glaze: exterior, glossy, chocolate brown to orange; interior, medium brown, worn. The change of color from rim to body is intentional and achieved through firing (supra, "Clay," 17 and ns. 107, 108). Clay: fine, hard, and smooth. Munsell no. for all pieces: 7.5 YR 7/4 (pink).

Dot rosettes painted in white on dark glazed backgrounds begin to appear in LPC and continue into EC. Several of the fragments were found on a level with other TR pottery; some were at a higher level. The nine pieces were discovered during different excavating seasons but clearly belong to the same vessel.

Yorum
Cf. Perachora II, 70, pl. 27, nos. 589--92, dated "LPC or TR," third quarter of the 7th C., with the comment that most kotylai with white rosettes on dark backgrounds belong to that period (Dunbabin's absolute chronology for TR is now slightly too high); Benson, “Notes” pl. 70, fig. 14 (an alabastron of the TR period); Burr, “Geometric House” fig. 26, no. 105, for a similar use of glazed lines between the rays and upper body; M. Robertson, "The Excavations at Al Mina, Sueidia IV. The Early Greek Vases," JHS 60 (1940) pl. 4:j, no. 17, an EC example with a white-dot rosette found at Gela, Grave 419.
