fish plates (ancient dishes) (plates (general, dishes), dishes (vessels for food), ... Furnishings and Equipment (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Plates of a special form used by the ancient Greeks, having a central depression and sometimes a turned-down rim, used for serving fish. The central depression was used to collect the juice or sauce in which the fish was served. Such fish plates may be made of stone, ceramic, or another material. They may be decorated with highly accurate representations of fish and other marine life. They were popular in Greece and its colonies in South Italy from the 4th century BCE. Athenian painters always oriented the bellies of the fish toward the rim of the plate while southern Italian painters positioned them with the bellies towards the center. Some fish plates have depictions of seafood arranged around a central dip for sauce. Androkydes of Kyzikos was one of the few fish plate painters to sign his work.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Verwijst naar oud-Griekse schotels met een voet, versierd met realistische afbeeldingen van zeedieren. Deze populaire borden werden gebruikt om vis op tafel te serveren en zijn gemaakt van de vroege 4de eeuw v. Chr. tot ver in de hellenistische periode, niet alleen in Attica maar ook in de Griekse kolonies in het zuiden van ItaliĆ«. Atheense schilders richtten de buik van de vissen altijd naar de rand van het bord terwijl Zuid-Italiaanse schilders ze juist met hun buik naar het midden afbeeldden. Sommige visborden bevatten afbeeldingen van zeevoedsel die zijn gerangschikt rond een centraal sausbakje. Androkydes van Kyzikos was een van de weinige visbordschilders die hun werk signeerden.
