Conservation of part of a kylix from Pythagoreio of Samos
The fragment is part of a small wide-bowled vessel, whose part of the rim and the body and the outgrowth of a handle are saved. It bears black glaze on the inner surface. Internally abrasions and a crack on the base can be noted.
The conservation work that was performed, include detailed conservation status, desalination, mechanical cleaning, drying and documentation of the procedure. For the desalination, the method of the static immersion is used and is considered complete, when the conductivity values are close to the conductivity value of the water of mains water supply. Desalination is a time consuming stage of the conservation . The fragments are immersed in successive baths of seawater –water from the water supply system – deionized water. The transition from one stage to the other is realized according to the conductivity measurement.
During the mechanical cleaning, soft brushes were used, because on its surface no sea depositions but only a thin salt crust was noted. In the course of cleaning, on the base of the vessel a hunting scene was uncovered. Once cleaning was complete, the object was let to dry.
The significance of conservation, apart from rescuing and restoring the artifact, lies and on the potentiality of scientific use of the object (study-promotion-exhibition).
