You can almost feel the conversation between the two of them. The facial features, the mane and musculature detail on both is outstanding. Aryballoi like this one was used by athletes to hold oil that was to be rubbed on their body before exercise or a contest. The small hole in the handle had a strap pushed through it so the aryballoi could be tied tightly to the athlete's wrist. The Aryballos is 3 1/2" tall and 2' wide. The rim is 1 1/4" in diameter. The bottom is flat and about 1 1/2" in diameter. From an English collection in 2003 with COA from them
