Description Fikellura ware derives its name from a site on Rhodes, where one of the first examples was found, but it is now believed that the pottery was made in Miletus, a site on the coast of Asia Minor. The braided "guilloche" (interlacing bands) pattern on the neck and the band of crescents above the foot are typically East Greek. The main body of the vase is decorated with a delicate lattice pattern imitating fine embroidery.
