The Derveni Krater, the most elaborately ornamented bronze vessel from the ancient Greek world, was discovered in an undisturbed late 4th-century B.C. tomb near Thessaloniki in northern Greece in use as a sepulcher. Beryl Barr-Sharrar, author of The Derveni Krater: Masterpiece of Classical Greek Metalwork, discusses her dramatic new conclusions about this unique volute krater.
