A lebes (pl. lebetes; Greeklebes- bowl) is a deep bowl,
usually handleless and with a low neck. The shape is one
of the oldest in Athenian black-figure, and continues to
be made into the fifth-century. It has no foot, but may be
mounted on a stand. In vase-paintings, the shape is
shown in use as a mixing-bowl in the symposium.
Lebetes are also preserved in metal, and the shape can
be incorporated into a tripod. There are many references
to lebetes as prizes. The Greek word dinos (pl. dinoi) is
sometimes used today for the shape, but is not known
securely for it in antiquity.
A version with upright handles, a lid, a more distinct
neck and often made in one piece with the stand is
known today as a lebes gamikos (pl. lebetes gamikoi;
Greekgamein- to marry). Examples continue to be made
into the fourth century. It is usually associated with
marriage rituals, both in excavated contexts and as
loutrophoros

The loutrophoros (pl. loutrophoroi) is


an ovoid-bodied vessel with a tall
neck and two or three handles (hence
the terms loutrophoros-amphora and
loutrophoros-hydria), used for
carrying and storing water. Examples
can be traced back to the eighth
century. The use of the term
'loutrophoros' for vessels of this
shape is modern; in antiquity it
probably referred to the person
responsible for carrying the water
(Greekloutron- water for
bathing,phero- to carry).
The illustrations on vases regularly
suggest the settings in which the
vessel was used - marriage and
funerary rituals - and excavated
examples, as well as images of the
shape on other vases, support these
contexts. Later in the fifth century,
the shape was carved in marble for
Athenian cemeteries.
