Rare Etruscan Bucchero ayballos
Late 7th century BC
height cm 6,8 (2,7’’)
With a squat globular body, finely incised with a frieze of hoplites arranged in two warriors on horse, converging to a stylized vegetal palmette, and a standing hoplite towards the right.
The depiction, carefully realised, reminds the war theme and in particular the heroic ascent; probably with a funerary purpose, it was part of grave goods.

European private collection, acquired in the 1970s.
