The Proto-geometric style (1000-900 BCE) of Greek pottery decoration was a forerunner of the full Geometric style. This amphora dates from the first half of the 10th century BCE and displays the popular circle design. These were achieved using multiple fixed brushes attached to a compass. Also typical of the style are the plain black horizontal bands. (British Museum, London).
