Ancient Greek, Apulian Lekanis Circa second half of the 4th century BC This beautiful lekanis features a shallow bowl elevated on a foot and a distinctive cover lid with a disc-like knob serving as well as a handle. The lid is adorned with two profile female heads set between large palmettes, each lady adorned with a sakkos-bound hairstyle, beaded necklace, and earrings. The knobbed finial is embellished with a rosette to its central recession. A lekanis, in ancient Greek pottery, is a shallow, lidded dish primarily used for holding offerings or for personal grooming. Originating in the 4th century BC, the lekanis typically served practical and ritualistic functions, often associated with the feminine sphere. Cf.
