Record Type: concept
oa (vessels (containers), <containers by form>, ... Furnishings and Equipment (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Small, extremely rare egg-shaped vessels of ancient Greece, found in both black- and red-figure. The specific use of oa is not determined although real eggs as well as marble and ceramic ones were placed in graves. Lidded oa might have held scented oil (perfume). Lidless oa were probably not containers since they either have a small hole at one or both end or no opening at all.
 
Terms:
oa (preferred,C,U,English-P,D,U,PN)
oa (Dutch-P,D,U,U)

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Kleine, uiterst zeldzame eivormige oud-Griekse vaten, zowel zwart- als roodfigurig gevonden. Waarvoor oa specifiek gebruikt werden is niet bekend, maar echte, marmeren en aardewerken eieren werden wel in graven geplaatst. In oa met deksel is wellicht reukolie (parfum) bewaard. Oa zonder deksel waren waarschijnlijk geen houders omdat ze maar een kleine opening aan een of beide uiteinden hebben, of helemaal geen opening.
