PISSIDE ETRUSCO-CORINZIAPISSIDE ETRUSCO-CORINZIAPISSIDE ETRUSCO-CORINZIAPISSIDE ETRUSCO-CORINZIA
1st half of VI century B.C. An Etrusco-Corinthian ware pyxis with details in brown, decorated with encircling bands of different dimension and dotted register.
For nearly a century, between about 630 and 540 BC, pottery that had been imported from Corinth acted as inspiration for Etruscan potters and vase-painters. It is likely that immigrant craftsmen began local manufacture. The main centers of production were Cerveteri and Vulci, both in Southern Etruria. This pottery style is linked by some to the figure of Demaratus. The forms employed include various forms of jug (olpai, oinochoe) and unguent containers (aryballoi and alabastra) as well as amphorae and kraters. The pottery was also traded outside Etruria as far as Berezan and Odessa on the Black Sea, Amathus on Cyprus, Megara Hyblaea on Sicily, Carthage in North Africa, Tharros on Sardinia, Cap d’Antibes and Saint Blaise in southern France, and Ampurias in northeast Spain
