Ancient Greek Oinochoes

Like the ‘lagynos’ and ‘olpe’, the ‘oinochoe’ was a popular choice of wine jug for the ancient Greeks. The majority of ancient Greek oinochoai were potted in painted terracotta, although metal examples were also common among the upper classes. Oinochoai would probably have been used during symposia: an essential part of male civic life for the ancient Greeks.
