Show Summary Details

Quick Reference


The name given to a type of shallow pottery bowl with a decorated base that is found in the early Bronze Age of the Cyclades in Greece. The handle consists of two divergent knobs or legs. The decoration includes spirals, female sexual symbols, and sometimes representations of boats. The function of these vessels is not known—suggestions include drums, mirrors, and lids—but they are certainly not for frying.
