Etruscan red-figure oinochoe beak-spouted, 4th century B.C.

An oinochoe is a jug with a truncated cone body, a developed neck, with a handle on the top and a lobed mouth. Its function was to take the wine out of the crater before serving it. The body of the oinochoe is decorated with the profile heads of two women facing each other, each wearing refined headdresses, another female profile head on the neck, palmette and parchment decoration under the handle.
