Large Daunian Vessel

This rare double-handled vessel with upturned handles and wide everted rim is painted with red and brown geometric patterns such as bands and waves of red and brown.
Daunian pottery was produced in the Daunia, today’s Italian provinces of Barletta and Foggia.

The Duanians were a South-Italian tribe, inhabiting Northern Apulia in Classical antiquity. Their wares tend to be simpler in form compared to the red-figure ware also being produced at the time.

The development of Daunian pottery forms is independent of the first Greek ceramics.
