Pots and pans of classical Athens

"Mingling images on vases with the ceramics recovered during excavations at the Agora, the authors show how different forms were used in Classical Athens. By linking the shapes of pots with their social functions, this book gives meaning to the endless list of ancient names (skyphos, olpe, kantharos, lekane, hydria, kylichnis . . .) that tend to turn museum visits into a blur. The book is illustrated with over 60 black and white photographs"
