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.
Provenance C. T. Seltman; Spink and Son, Ltd., Toronto, 1949; Walters Art Museum, 1950, by purchase.
Credit Museum purchase with funds provided by the S. & A.P. Fund, 1950
