Our Rhyton Replica is a detailed pottery masterpiece inspired by examples found in Greece, South Italy and Thrace.
A Rhyton is a conical container from which fluids were intended to be drunk (wine) or to be poured (blood). The usage of a rhyton is very commonly described on ancient Roman frescoes as drinking cups or vessel for ritual acts. They are typically formed in the shape of an animal's head, with an opening at mouth of the animal through which the liquid fell, and with the characteristic that they could not usually be set down on a surface without spilling their contents.
Our ceremonial Greek rhyton is worthy of display in a cabinet full of treasures. Handmade clay pottery safe to use for drinking.
