Red figured Lebes Gamikos

856N
Beautiful ancient Greek red figured Lebes Gamikos, a wedding libation bowl used in marriage ceremonies (literally, lebes gamikos means marriage vase). It was probably used in the ritual sprinkling of the bride with water before the wedding. In form, it has a large bowl-like body and a stand that can be long or short. Painted scenes are placed on either the body of the vessel or the stand.
