Scope note
Refers to a style of Cycladic pottery characterized by the use of some curvilinear motifs, rather than the strictly rectilinear motifs typical of Cycladic styles that preceded and followed it. The range of shapes of vessels increases from what was known in earlier styles, including the curious so-called "frying-pan" form, and curvilinear running spirals, scenes of boats, and other designs were introduced.
