Oinochoe with a Female Head


Description Provenance Credit
Description As female heads were a common motif on red-figure objects of this period, it is not surprising that those depicted on the "kantharoi" (drinking vessels) in this case and on this jug are similar. The women wear a richly patterned "saccos," a head scarf which covers most of the hair.
Provenance Horia Puscasiu [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Marilyn and Herbert Scher, Pikseville, MD, 1984, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 2003, by gift.
Credit Gift of Marilyn and Herbert Scher, 2003
