Corinthian pottery of the 7th and early 6th centuries BC is noted for its rich ochre colouring and its depiction of mythical or actual animals and birds.
This one shows an owl flanked by two lions.
The alabastron was a perfume holder, usually attached to the wrist by its neck with a piece of leather.
