Gold Wreath, Greek, 300-100 B.C., Gold 7 11/16 - 9/16 X 25 3/8 in. Gold wreaths such as this one derive their form from wreaths of real leaves worn in religious ceremonies and given as prizes in athletic and artistic contests. Because of their fragility, gold wreaths were probably not meant to be worn. They were dedicated to the gods in sanctuaries and placed in graves as funerary offerings. Although known in earlier periods, gold wreaths became much more frequent in the Hellenistic age, probably due in large part to the greatly increased availability of gold in the Greek world following the eastern conquests of Alexander the Great.

Vessel for Scented Oil with Patterned Bands, Greek, Ionia (present-day western Turkey), 200 - 100 B.C. Faience, 9 1/16 in. Both the form and material of this faience alabastron ultimately derive from Egypt. An alabastron is a container for perfumed oil that takes its name from alabaster, the material from which the original Egyptian examples were made. Greek artists adopted the Egyptian alabastron's shape in the
600s B.C. but made the vessel in a variety of materials. Faience is made from quartz silicate, which produces a glass-like glazed surface when fired. The lack of figural
decoration is unusual. The Alabastron was made in three pieces: the mouth and foot were molded, and the body was formed on a potter's wheel. The Getty Villa Malibu. LA, CA.
