Terracotta Krater with a lid surmounted by a small hydria, Greek Euboean, ca. 750-740 B.C., Metropolitan Museum of Arts. During the 8th century B.C. the Geometric style that had originated in Athens spread throughout the Greek speaking world. This Krater is different than other Kraters in the Geometric style from Attica. The shoulder is subdivided by four handles rather than two, and the carpet like decoration was applied over a light ceramic slip ground instead of directly onto the clay.
