Title: Two new Corinthian kotylai painters from San Francesco Suare's 'stipe' in Catania
Author(s): GRASSO, Lorenza
Volume: 75 Date: 2000
Among the Corinthian pottery from the San Francesco Square’s deposit, the kotylai are the most numerous class (906 pieces), as it is the rule in the case of votive-deposits (for example Tocra, Perachora, Selinus). Most specimens with black figures date back to the Middle Corinthian period, probably to the advanced phase. In fact, only the latest products of the most typical Middle Corinthian painters are represented, while the kotylai painters, who started their activity in the Early Corinthian period, are not represented. Moreover, to the Late Corinthian period we can assign only specimens, numerous though they are, by the Chaeroneia group and only one specimen of the kotylai with a row of goats to the right which are typical of advanced Late Corinthian.
