Peuketic vases are an indigenous type of ceramic. Their production area takes up about the space between Bari and Gnathia . It is named after the ancient Peuketia that was in this area. At first, the vases were characterized by geometric ornamentation, swastics , diamonds, and horizontal and vertical lines. Especially in the late Geometric phase of this ceramic (before 600 BC), the patterns formed tight ornamental grids. The main forms are craters , amphorae , kantharoi and stamnoi . Bowls are rather rare.

The second phase of the genus since the 6th century BC BC is strongly influenced by Corinthian vase painting . This is expressed both in the ornaments, for example in the form of beam decorations, and in the change to the figurative representation. The third and final phase involves a change in production. If the vases were hand-formed up to then, the potter's wheel is now introduced. The painting is purely ornamental. Vegetable decorations such as ivy and laurel tendrils and palmettes are on display . Only rarely are figurative or mythical images shown to complement the ornamental decorations. Greek vessel shapes such as lidded bowls, clover leaf pots and thymiaterion are adopted.
