Hydria

A hydria (plural: hydriai) was an ancient Greek vessel in clay or bronze used to carry water. Two horizontal handles were used to carry the vessel and one vertical handle to pour. This example is from Attica, c. 500 BCE and the main body depicts two sirens with grapes and vine leaves. (British Museum, London).
