Corinthian aryballos found at Milmanda

Corinthian aryballos from the Milmanda necropolis (Vimbodí i Poblet) found by chance in 1975. It is dated to between 575 and 550 BC and is one of the offertory objects linked to funerary rituals. In this case it is of particular importance because it provides evidence of a trade in luxury goods, such as the perfume the aryballos once contained. The central body is decorated with a quatrefoil and a five-pointed star and there is a chessboard motif on the front of the handle.
