Roman, Syro-Palestinian (Samaria?), Snake-Thread Flask, Late 2nd - Early 4th Century A.D.

Click for a larger photo
Snake-thread ornamentation originated in the eastern provinces of the Roman empire in the second half of the second century and its popularity peaked in the first half of the third century. Snake-thread decoration was revived in the second half of the fourth century in the east and in the west near Cologne in modern Germany. Serpentine form trails may vary in thickness, may be the same color as the vessel (usually colorless) or brightly colored (common in the West). Ontario Museum 309, with similar subtle snake-thread ornamentation, is attributed to Samaria, 3rd to early 4th century A.D.

Roman Greece, Barbotine Ware Amphora, 2nd Century A.D.

Click for a larger photo
From the collection of Alex G. Malloy, former dealer in antiquities for 40 years.

Barbotine is French for a ceramic slip, a mixture of clay and water used for decorating pottery. In English the term is used for two different techniques but here we are only concerned with the technique used in the ancient world. Barbotine is piped onto the object much like cakes are decorated with icing, using a quill, horn, or another kind of nozzle. The slip is often a color contrasting with rest of the vessel and forms a design, a pattern, or inscription, that is raised above the main surface. The Egyptians used barbotine decorative designs. Specimens have also been found at Minoan Knossos on the island of Crete.

This example was found near Corinth. The style is certainly related to the Egyptian Barbotine ware but it may have been made in mainland Greece.

AE36060. Barbotine ware amphora, Athenian Agora -, ROM -; 5 inches high, Collectible condition, buff clay, ovoid body, wide tubular neck, strap handles, horizontal bands on neck, Barbatine rows of leaf shaped decorations on body; reconstructed, one section of rim, a small shoulder and part of one handle restored; rare; $830.00 (738.70)

Egyptian, 12 1/2" Wood Standing Lady Figure, 26th - 30th Dynasty, 664 - 342 B.C.

Click for a larger photo
In ancient Egypt, both sexes wore robes called kalasiris by Herodotus. Material and cut varied over the centuries, though the cloth of choice was always linen. The kalasiris women wore might cover one or both shoulders or be worn with shoulder straps. They covered the breasts most of the time, though there were periods when fashion left them bare. While the top could reach anywhere from below the breast up to the neck, the bottom hem generally touched the calves or even the ankles. Some had short sleeves, others were sleeveless. The fit might be very tight or quite loose. They were often worn with a belt which held together the folds of cloth. -- http://www.reshafim.org.il/ad/egypt/timelines/topics/clothing.htm
