GROUP OF BUCCHERO VASES
Last quarter of the seventh century BC – first quarter of the sixth century BC
Various dimensions
Recoverd by the Guardia di Finanza (Tenenza di Ladispoli) in 2007

Kylix of Ionic type with foot
Height 47 cm; Ø rim 12 cm; Ø foot 4 cm

This kylix is of lucid black bucchero. The rim is slightly chipped. It has a deep bowl, a slightly flared rim, a short trumpet-shaped foot and horizontal handles attached at the shoulder. Fine lines create a banded decoration on the exterior. The kylix is a common Etruscan bucchero vessel that dates between the last quarter of the seventh century BC and the first quarter of the sixth century BC.

Oinochoe with ovoid belly
Height 20.5 cm; Ø rim 9 cm; Ø foot 8 cm

This oinochoe is of lucid black bucchero. The foot is slightly chipped. It has a circular mouth with a narrow spout, an ovoid belly, a short and wide truncated-conical foot, and a thin vertical rod-shaped handle attached between the rim and shoulder. Thin lines are incised horizontally on the belly.

Oinochoe of Proto-Corinthian type
Height 19 cm; Ø rim 10 cm; Ø foot 4 cm

This oinochoe is of burnished black bucchero. It has a circular mouth with a small spout, a tall and narrow neck, an ovoid belly, a truncated-conical foot, and a strap-handle attached between the neck and the shoulder. On the shoulder is decoration consisting of a row of closed fan-shapes facing right, each imprinted with a small wheel: a vertical design is scratched onto the belly. The shape of the oinochoe, with its high neck, belongs to the Proto-Corinthian repertoire and is common in Etruria, especially in the last thirty years of the seventh century BC.

Calyx-krater on a tall foot
Height 16 cm 16; Ø rim 16 cm; Ø foot 12.5 cm

This calyx-krater is of lucid black bucchero. It has a deep bowl with a diamond-cut pattern at the bottom and a tall, flared rim. It has an external decoration consisting of three horizontal grooves. Five open fans, each imprinted with a small wheel, rest on these grooves. The foot is tall and trumpet-shaped with a collar around the top of the stem. The calyx is widespread in Etruria between the last quarter of the seventh century BC and the first half of the sixth century BC. This example can be compared to others from Vulci and Cerveteri, both datable to around the end of the seventh century BC.

Cup on a short foot
Height 8 cm; Ø rim 13 cm; Ø foot 7 cm

This cup is of burnished black bucchero. The foot has been reconstructed from fragments and restored with a different material. It has a compressed cap-shaped basin with a diamond-cut pattern at the bottom. The decoration on the exterior consists of three horizontal grooves that are close together, upon which rest five open fans, each imprinted with a small wheel. The foot is short and trumpet-shaped.

Cup with two handles on a tall foot
Height 12 cm; Ø rim 14.5 cm; Ø foot 5 cm

This cup is of lucid black bucchero. It has a deep bowl with a tall flared rim, a sharp carination, a short trumpet-shaped foot, and elevated strap-handles. The exterior of the cup features decoration consisting of closed fans facing right.

Kantharos on a circular foot
Height 13 cm; Ø rim 12 cm; Ø foot 6.5 cm

This kantharos is of burnished black bucchero. It has been restored from fragments. It has a deep bowl with a tall, slightly-flared rim, a ring foot and elevated strap-handles. This kantharos has a particular, uncommon shape, given the rim’s verticality and the presence of a circular and extremely short foot. This vase is comparable to Etruscan kantharoi datable to the second half of the sixth century BC.

Amphora of Nikosthenic-type
Height 25 cm; Ø rim 10 cm; Ø foot 7.5 cm

This amphora is of burnished black bucchero. It has been restored from fragments. It has a tall circular foot, two intermediate ribs adorning the belly and Orvieto-type handles.

Kylix of Ionic type with foot
Height 4.7 cm; Ø rim 10 cm; Ø foot 4 cm

This kylix is of burnished black bucchero. It has a deep bowl with a slightly-flared rim, a ring foot and horizontal handles attached at the shoulder. The exterior of the kylix features decoration consisting of closed fans incised horizontally.
