A pithos is a very large container whose shape clearly indicated that it was used for domestic storage.  It probably had its place in one of the rooms of the house or in a corner of the courtyard and served to store liquids or dry substances.  This large example features a rounded body that gradually tapers to a small flattened base, intended perhaps to be sunk into the floor.  The incised decorative ring and dot pattern at the base of the neck was used to identify contents.

Dimensions: Height: 26 inches (66 cm), Width: 13 1/2 inches (34.29 cm)
