It will be seen hereafter, when we come to speak of Greece, how the forms of the kylix improve.
A kylix from Vulci, and now at Munich, is remarkable for the scene depicted on it.
No slave (and slaves then abounded) used a kylix from which to drink his wine, nor an nochoe from which to pour it.
The kylix (Fig. 183) was the cup most generally used, and varied in shape.
In the kylix on the right, the rectilinear designs and enclosed squares become the fret.
The scene on the kylix at Munich is supposed to represent Homer among the potters.
It much resembles the Greek kylix or cylix, except that the foot is less perfect.
We give two examples of the cylix or kylix used for a drinking-cup, which always carried two handles.
