NOTES The Containers hierarchy contains descriptors for artifacts used to hold substances or objects. Included are descriptors for containers intended for culinary use, for horticultural use, for health care, hygiene, and similar personal needs as well as descriptors for containers associated with liturgical, funerary, and other ceremonial activities. A descriptor for a container is placed either with respect to the item's earliest historical use or where the descriptor has its broadest meaning. Ancient vase shapes, however, have been placed by their classical meaning or context, even though in some instances the descriptor may be applied to preclassical or postclassical vessels.
