Today we move out to the Greek island. This is a vessel of so called marine style, made somewhere soon after 1500 BC (based on LM IB which mean Late Minoan 1 B, a specified period in a relative dating system). The type is easily recognized by the motif and pale background and if you ever visit the national museum in Athens you’ll see a lot of these! The one here, being a three handled amphora, is however not a standard shape. The two most common shapes are called pilgrim flask (a small round vessel) and rhyton (a sort of wine shin shaped vessel with one large opening and one much smaller on the other end for pouring).
