Disiecta Membra: What can small and broken black-figure pots tell us about festivals in ancient Athens?

An analysis of the ceramics of Classical Athens known as ‘late black figure’ has begun to reveal that they served very important functions for participants in the ample festivals in ancient Athens. In this talk Prof. Smith will reveal the clues—shape, size, and images—that point to the festival use of these small and fragmentary vessels that are found in abundance in Mediterranean excavations and the storerooms of museums.
