Oinokhoe, a wine jug from the classical period of Greek pottery, a graceful vessel with delicately curved handle and trefoil-shaped mouth. It was used to take the wine out of the crater and distribute it into cups (especially at symposiums) and is the vase carried by the goddesses and used for libations in conjunction with a phiale. It was made from precious metal, bronze, or clay. The oenochoe was revived during the Renaissance and again during the Neoclassical period of the 18th century.
