Pithos

Pithos

Malia, Crete

Giant vases of this sort are found all over Minoan temples. I'm not sure if they held water or were just ceremonial. Either way, they are quite large and I'm surprised that so many of the managed to stay in tact or in few enough pieces that they could be reconstructed as they once were.
