The Pithos

The Pithos

The Pithos is obviously closely related to the Pithari, but of a less bulbous design. It's function in ancient (and not so ancient) times would have been similar, the storage of oil and grain.

Whether used for planting or as a decorative feature, this is again a delightful pot which will attract admiration from all who see it taking pride of place in the Australian home or garden.

Both the Pithos and the Pithari were occasionally produced in huge sizes for storing the riches of the wealthy. Some of these giant pots can still be seen today - over 3,500 years after they were made - at the Palace of Knossos in Crete.
