AN IMPORTANT LARGE ETRUSCAN IMPASTO HOLMOS AND DINOS, Circa 7th Century B.C. The holmos was one of the utensils required for a banquet. The stand, which is hollow inside, once supported the accompanying dinos, or large cauldron. The holmos' structure consists of three elements fired together as a single piece. It is decorated with openwork rosettes with knobs at their centers, cutout lines between. It sits on a flaring base and is topped by an upper conical portion.
