      Black figure Greek vase paintings were common in Greece between the 7th and 5th century BC. The amphora in the image bears a black figure design showing Achilles slaying the Amazon Queen Penthesilea. He is depicted as fully armed and bearded. His tresses are long and he is shown plunging a spear into the queen’s heart, while balancing on one. Smaller pieces start from just £1, The market for Greek vases has always been strong, and recently we have seen collectors buying ancient pieces to sit alongside cutting-edge contemporary art. Smaller pieces start from just £1,, while larger and rarer pieces can sell for hundreds of thousands of pounds.

    Corinthian pottery - a history of study. The interest in Corinth expressed by Pausanias and other ancient writers seems to have continued into more modern times. The text of the tablet is a copy, made at Nineveh in the seventh century B.C.E., of observations of the planet Venus made in the reign of Ammisaduqa, king of Babylon, about years earlier. Modern astronomers have used the details of the observations in an attempt to calculate the dates of Ammisaduqa (reigned B.C.E.).

    Corinthian pottery - an introduction. Although never as artistically celebrated as Athens nor as militarily renowned as Sparta, the city-state of Corinth was nevertheless a major player in the renaissance of Greece during the first millennium BC, contributing particularly to the development of visual arts which reached its zenith in the 5th century BC. In the Protogeometric and Geometric styles the technique is usually no more than dark paint on a light ground. 'Orientalizing' is the name given to the next style, produced in a variety of techniques, under growing eastern influence from about BC.

Paolo Enrico Arias. Vase painting and the history of art. Experts tend to speak of 'Greek Vases' and 'Greek vase-painting', rather than pottery or ceramics. This terminology has been in use for a long time and reflects the material's long, and indisputably close, relation with the history of art.

The earliest stylistic period is the Geometric, lasting from about to period is further broken down into a Proto-Geometric transition from Mycenaean forms. In this period the surface of the pot was completely covered with a network of fine patterns in which circles and arcs predominate.

Briefly, ancient Greek vases display several painting techniques, and these are often period specific. During the Geometric and Orientalizing periods ( B.C.E.), painters employed compasses to trace perfect circles and used silhouette and outline methods to delineate shapes and figures (below).

The Geometric age is usually dated from about BC, although in reality little is known about art in Greece during the preceding years, traditionally known as the Greek Dark Ages. The 7th century BC witnessed the slow development of the Archaic style as exemplified by the black-figure style of vase painting.

Ancient Greek pottery, due to its relative durability, comprises a large part of the archaeological record of ancient Greece, and since there is so much of it (overpainted vases are recorded in the Corpus vasorum antiquorum), it has exerted a disproportionately large influence on our understanding of Greek shards of pots discarded or buried in the 1st millennium BC are.
