Distinctive Features

The formal characteristics of the amphora resemble the Dressel 6B type. The rim has the shape of a chalice. On the outer side it has a groove which runs either horizontally or sinuously. The rim attaches to the neck at a sharp angle. The neck and the body are continuous, the latter ending in oval-shaped base ending in a short stub. The thin, small handles are attached to the upper part of the body. Their cross-section is circular.
