Hunt Museum - Beaked Flagon (Oinochoe) - MG 015 3D Model
This beaked flagon of beaten bronze was found somewhere in eastern France. Standing on a slightly splayed base, the body rises to a tall shoulder, where it narrows before sloping steeply upward on one side to the pouring mouth. The separately cast handle has a terminal at the lower end, decorated with a palmette, S-spirals and other shapes. Above, it forks before ending in two animal heads. Many such vessels (Gr. oenochoe) were manufactured from the late sixth century BC onwards in Etruria, north of Rome. They were placed in Celtic princely graves.
Their central European distribution varies widely, but by a fortunate coincidence, The Hunt Museum also has the only example presumed to have reached England in antiquity.
