Height 27 cms (10.6 ins) Provenance: From a German collection 1970’s-1990’s A main characteristic of Amlash pottery is its intricate sculptural detail and technical manufacture.

During the 8th and 7th Centuries B.C., rhytons in the form of animal heads were extremely popular in the Near East. No king or ruler would have been without a rhyton, and the leaders naturally competed with each other to have the most beautiful and luxurious examples. The word rhyton derives from the Greek verb meaning "to run through.” Paintings on the sides of Greek vases depict revellers using rhytons to aerate and drink wine. The wine was poured into the top of the vessel and came out from the animal-headed spout that emerges from the, a Greek type of vessel used in Antiquity to aerate and drink wine.
