A vase is a vessel of elegant shape with painted or molded decorations made of clay, porcelain, stone, glass, metal, and other materials.

Vases are interesting, firstly, in the sense that the images that decorate them give an idea of the drawing art of the ancient Greeks, of the character and direction of their painting; secondly, the illustration of these vessels serves as an illustrated commentary on all Hellenistic antiquity: mythological scenes in with Olympus characters, scenes from legends about heroes, religious and funeral rites, gymnastic games, various public episodes, and privacy.

As of the end of the 19th century, the Louvre in Paris, the British Museum in London, the Pinakothek of Modernity Munich, the Antique Collection (Berlin) and the National Archaeological Museum of Naples, the National Archaeological Museum (Athens) and the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg are particularly rich in vases. Painted clay vases are found mainly in tombs; they were usually placed or laid near the body of the deceased or they were hung on the walls of the sepulcher tomb. Most of these vases are related to household items. There are also decorative vases, as well as vases, which were used mainly as a gift to the gods and people, or as rewards in gymnastics and other competitions.

The first painted vases, which attracted the attention of scientists in the XVII century, were found in Tuscany, and therefore they were considered as works of Etruria; but as of the end of the 19th century, they are considered to be of Greek origin, and only some that clearly differ from the others in form (canopy), clay color, character and content of painting and other features are really Etruscan items.

Vases were made in almost all cities of Greece and its colonies, but Attica was the main center of this production, especially Athens and Corinth. From here, through trade, they spread along the shores of the Mediterranean and Black Seas and penetrated into the continent.
