Especially well known are the Rhodian plates. These were painted in a polychrome (multi-coloured) technique, with some detail incised, as in black-figure vase painting. Between 560 and 530 BC, situlae based on Egyptian models prevailed. They depicted both Greek themes such as Typhoeus, and others inspired by ancient Egyptian tradition, such as Egyptian hieroglyphs and Egyptian athletics.
