Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum
This CVA fascicule includes seventy-eight Attic and five Atticizing amphorae dating to the period from Sub-Mycenaean to Late Geometric. They represent the great majority of the Attic and Atticizing amphorae of that period kept in the National Archeological Museum in Athens. Amporae from published excavations (e.g. the Nea Ionia vases) and those included in a previous CVA volume (e.g. the monumental belly handed amphora inv. no. 804) were systematically excluded from this volume. Emphasis has been given to the unpublished Attic amphorae and sixty-three vases are presented here for the first time. Most of the other remaining twenty amphorae have been widely mentioned in discussions of Attic Geometric vase painting as significant pieces for the evolution of the style; but in practice they are poorly known and none of them has ever been fully published. Some of them are known from a sort report or a bad photograph, sometimes limited to a simple detail of the vase, others have been mentioned as parallels in discussions of workshops and styles. Their full publication here for the first time is a balated tribute to the renown and influence of the Attic Geometric style. [...]
