And perhaps an observer of the vases will not go_too_far in deducing that the outlook of their makers and users was basically stable and secure .
In the vases this spirit may perhaps at_times bore or repel one in its internal self-satisfaction , but the best of the Geometric pins have rightly been considered among the most beautiful ever made in the Greek world .
While Protogeometric vases usually turn_up , especially outside Greece proper , together with as_many or more examples of local stamp , these `` non Greek '' patterns had mostly vanished by the later ninth century .
One can take a vase of about 800 B.C. and , without any knowledge of its place_of_origin , venture to assign it to a specific area ; imitation and borrowing of motifs now become ascertainable .
The antecedents of Dipylon vases and of the Iliad lie_in the Aegean past .Synonyms vase Related Terms jar urn
