Pointed "Pyxis"


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description This "pyxis" (small container) lacks its cover, which rested on the flat rim. Two holes indicate that both elements were suspended together on a cord. The simple decoration represents early Geometric decoration at its purest, without figural or animal additions.
