An unparalleled assemblage of Archaic black-figure painted plaques was uncovered near Penteskouphia, a village west of ancient Corinth, over a century ago. The plaques-represented by over 1,200 fragments-and their depictions of gods, warriors, animals, and the potters themselves, provide a uniquely rich source of information about Greek art, technology, and society. In this volume, the findspot of the plaques is identified in a contribution by Ioulia Tzonou-Herbst and James Herbst, and the assemblage as a whole is fully contextualized within the Archaic world.. Then, by focusing specifically on the images of potters at work, the author illuminates the relationship between Corinthian and Athenian art, the technology used in ancient pottery production, and religious anxiety in the 6th century B.C.
