The article is devoted to the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts collection of ceramic containers. Compared to other museums, this collection is a small one, and contains only 103 complete and archaeologically complete vessels. It includes amphorae from the excavations of Panticapaeum, Phanagoria, the necropolis of “Tyrambe”, as well as incidental finds, acquisitions and gifts. Despite its small size, the collection contains unique vessels of Paros, Mesembria (?), and Erythrai (?)
