Sample text

The commonest shapes seem to be trefoil-mouthed oinochoai and cups. A peculiar variety of the oinochoe has a globular body and a small neck - Corinthian Geometric potters always liked plump shapes. The cup, at first deep, grows shallower. The decoration is usually confined to a single reserved field - on the neck of oinochoai and the shoulder of cups - and the rest of the pot is painted dark except for narrow groups of reserved bands. The characteristic ornament is a set of three or four horizontal zigzags, often connected to the frame of the field by short strokes from their apices - a rather clumsy and later example is shown on Plate 8A.

Circular motives give way to rectilinear, particularly the meander, which is used both as a short strip in a panel and repeated to form a continuous band. It appears first in the battlement form and built of parallel strands (Plate 3A) - conceivably an angular version of the wavy lines of Protogeometric (Plate 2B) or else stuffed with dots; but soon it is regularly involuted and hatched (as on Plate 3B), and this form becomes the characteristic ornament of Attic Geometric. Attempts have been made to derive the meander from contemporary cultures outside Greece, but the parallels suggested are both unsatisfactory and unnecessary.

Another characteristic motif is the double horizontal zigzag. Clearly the Protogeometric style did not originate in Crete, but evident signs of foreign I2 - The Protogeometric Style - influence are few though there are some imported Attic pots. It lasted at Cnossus till the middle of the ninth century and in remoter places probably longer. IJ CHAPTER III THE GEOMETRIC STYLE --·-·-INTRODUCTION A conscious insistence that shape should be clearly defined and decoration have an abstract regularity distinguishes the Protogeometric from the Mycenaean style.
