Column-krater

Drawing of column-krater

Named for its column-like handles, the column-krater is first known from Corinthian examples dated to the late seventh century. It is regularly produced by Athenian potters from the first half of the sixth-century until the third quarter of the fifth. It seems from graffiti on Athenian red-figure examples that the vessel was referred to as Korinthios or Korinthiourges.
