Krater 2 – Greek ancient vase


The word krater means “mixing-bowl,” and the vase was used for mixing pure wine with water. (Ancient Greeks did not drink their wine “unadulterated”, because it was considered too strong and prevented people from enjoying it longer, but this wise behavior was frequently abandoned!).

The shape of this Krater resembles that of a flower calyx. Attic potter Exikias is probably the inventor of its shape.
