|Pottery| |Antiquities|, |Cyprus,| |Red| |Polished| |Gourd| |Juglet,| |c.| |2200| || |1750| |B.C.|
Red Polished Ware is a type of pottery from the Cypriot Bronze Age (2400 - 1600 B.C.), described as monochrome vessels with smooth surfaces, slipped in red or red-brown slips and burnished to a medium or high luster. Red Polished Ware includes a diverse range of vessel forms, including elaborate ritual vessels and zoomorphic shapes. Common decorations include incised motifs, relief decorations or mottled surfaces. Black rims and interiors to vessels were often created by use of specific and well-controlled firing techniques.

|Greek| |Antiquities|, |Greek| |Bronze| |(Krater)| |Handle,| |Ornamented| |With| |a| |Panther| |Head,| |c.| |400| |B.C.|
The Panther was the companion of Bacchus. This handle was probably once attached to a krater, a punch-bowl type vessel used for diluting and serving wine. The earliest kraters were bronze and almost exclusively the volute-type. Very few bronze kraters have survived. Most often only the handles remain.
