Example text

Of the shapes the most important are amphora, krater (rarely with a high stem), cup, pyxis and oinochoe: in the Late stage and in Subgeometric the krater predominates. The technique is competent. The clay, which often has white inclusions and a greenish tinge, is rather coarser than Attic. The Argive school was evidently influenced by Attic and later by Corinthian. 23 - The Geometric Style - In turn it had some influence on Arcadia, and a little on Sparta and perhaps too at an early stage on Corinth.

Since there is very little in the decoration that would not or could not be considered of the Late stage elsewhere nor is there much sign of a transition from Protogeometric, it seems that Laconian Geometric appeared fairly suddenly about 750 BC. At first, perhaps, a band of continuous decoration was regular and the typical ornament was concentric circles, the sets often carelessly spaced and sometimes intersecting. Later, richer decoration and panelling were preferred and the influences of Argos and Corinth are visible, even on the same pot.

The amphora of Plate 2B is a fair specimen of the light-ground manner, which sometimes invades the neck also: it is used mainly on large vases, and becomes less popular towards the end of the style. The sparse ornaments and bands of dark paint only emphasize the prevailing light tone. Plate 1 illustrates the complementary dark-ground manner, which on the oinochoe (D) is carried to an extreme that might be called the black style. It is no accident that such ornaments as concentric circles and chequers and even cross-hatching are composed equivalently of dark and light, and so can be interpreted according to their 7 - The Protogeometric Style - Figure 1 Late Mycenaean cup.
