Kylix was the standard vessel for drinking wine.
This vase belongs to a particular class of pottery known as "Chalcidian". It is a homogenous group of high quality black-figure vases which appeared around the mid-6th c. BC and continued in production until the end of the century. "Chalcidian" vases have been found mainly in graves in the West (South Italy, Sicily, Etruria, Massalia [mod. Marseilles], and Emporion in Spain). Their name comes from the inscriptions written in the Chalcidian alphabet.
