Greek pottery spherical pyxis and lidG83
A brown glazed pottery urn with a round lid. Although the colouring is quite attractive the vessel was probably intended to have been black as is suggested by a small coloured patch in the glaze just above one side of the foot.
Greek, 4th or 3rd Century BC
Lid repaired with a little restoration, body intact apart from light wear on the rim and a small chip on the foot.
9.7 x 9.7 cms (including lid)
