The geometric period is the first of the periods into which ancient Greek history is divided and extends chronologically from 900 BC to 700 BC. The basic Geometric style motifs featured on vessels and other artifacts of the time are the following, among others: circles, semicircles, zigzags, curved lines, and rhombi, chequer-board patterns, meanders, crosses, and swastikas. In contrast to earlier periods, the Geometric period is characterised by a rigorous, mathematical reasoning, since mathematical instruments, such as the ruler and the compass, are used to render the decorative motifs.
