Teacher's Guide - Ancient Greece - Drinking Vessel Details

This resuable guide covers 900-700 BC and such key people as Homer, Cleisthenes, the Minoan, and the Mycenaean. It is to be used in conjunction with the Greek Drinking Vessel (EDU 005). An oinochoai is an earthenware pitcher with one handle that was used to pour wine and water. This pottery piece was made in the Geometric style between 900 - 700 B.C. Geometric style is characterized by shapes and ornamental bands that cover the entire pot. The designs include abstract patterns with occasional human and animal figures. The Geometric period of ancient Greece experienced a cultural revival through epic poetry and visual arts. Also during this time, Homer was writing the Iliad and the Odyssey. Artists began developing visual ways to interpret Greek myths and stories. Craftsmen also used the potter’s wheel. This improved the balance, elegance, and shape of their pottery. Greek pottery was also used during funerals. When people died relatives placed pots in the graves, or used them as grave markers.
