This is also a black glazed terra cotta piece from the same time period that also relates to the serving of wine. It is called an oinochoe (Ancient Greek: οἰνοχόη; from Ancient Greek: οἶνος oînos, “wine” and χέω khéō, “I pour”). It is a wine jug designed for pouring wine from a krater into a drinking cup. This jug has a trefoil mouth (as many did) and a single handle.
