Title: Impact Kraters
Subtitle: The Role of Wine-Mixing Vessels in the Production of Apulian Red-Figure Pottery
Author(s): HERRING, Edward
Volume: 95 Date: 2020
This paper examines the role of wine-mixing vessels in Apulian red-figure pottery by using a sample of 13,589 vases and fragments derived from the seminal corpora published by Trendall and Cambitoglou between 1978 and 1992. It explores the importance of each vessel shape over time and documents the dominant trends in their iconographic decoration. Although the majority of Apulian red-figure vessels have no recorded find-spot, the paper also explores the patterns that emerge from such provenance data as are recorded in the standard corpora. These reveal patterns of usage among both the Greek and Indigenous populations of South-East Italy.
