- Curator's comments
- Whilst Lemos places this sherd as being in the Mature Animal Style, the lotus flower decoration is more commonly associated with the Wild Goat Style. There are no features on the sherd that point to the later Mature Animal Style.
For parallels regarding the lotus flower, see British Museum 1888,0601.468.l.
Lemos takes the sherd as belonging to a chalice, but the interior of the vessel is unslipped.
Williams (2006a, 132, note 29) notes that Chian Wild Goat Style dinoi sherds are often mistaken for oinochoai because of the lack of slip on the interior surface.
