Context: The largest find of Geometric Period vases was at the Dipylon Cemetery in Athens. Apparently these vessels has a funerary use, perhaps as ossuaries. Their style is called Geometric because all designs--even animals and people--are deliberately reduced to flat geometric forms and linear motifs depicting only the essentials.Neck, Side A: Funeral Couch Side B: Procession of mourning womenBody, Top Register: Seven chariots Lower Register: Hounds pursuing a hare
