A Greek blackware guttos from Southern Italy. It features a high-angled flared spout and single looped handle. The central filling hole features a pronounced ridge and within it a trilobite shaped hole, where the lid would possibly be secured by screwing originally. The body is decorated with vertical ribs around the perimeter, and a band of dotted decoration along the filling hole. The vessel sits on a raised circular ridge. Most of the original black glaze has rubbed off, revealing the rich red terracotta the vessel is made of. The guttos was a vessel used primarily for refilling oil lamps, though they often also served a decorative purpose.
