Greek Pyxis

When people talk about a Greek pyxis vessel, they are commonly talking about a cylindrical vessel from the ancient world. Furthermore, this vessel usually comes with a separate lid as well. The lake was commonly made from strong materials and this vessel could be used to hold a wide variety of jewelry, makeup, and other cosmetics. As Greek culture continued to progress, the vessel continues to become wider and flatter. Therefore, it is possible to date a Greek pyxis vessel based on its size and style.

One of the most important parts of this vessel is the iconography that was on it. Depending on the person who possessed the vessel, the iconography would vary. In some situations, the iconography would depict amazing feats of human athleticism. In other situations, the iconography would be used to tell a story. The painting and craftsmanship are incredibly impressive when looking at an authentic Greek pyxis vessel.

Pyxis wares were used predominately by women as vessels to hold their cosmetics, trinkets and/or jewelry (as well as other small prized and valuable possessions).  These small jewelry boxes of sorts featured a large heavy base, a circular body, and its own lid.  The squat nature of the base made them sturdy and got rid of the possibility of the jar tipping over and smashing its contents, which was often a problem for ceramic pieces at the time.  Pyxis jars were decorated with images of marriage processions, starting at the house of a young girl and ending with the house of her new husband.
