Ancient Greek Lekythos

The ‘lekythos’ was a terracotta vessel with a narrow body and one single handle attached to the neck. Such vessels were used in ancient Greece to preserve and to pour perfumed oil and ointments: its particular shape limited the release of the content, thereby preventing wastage. Lekythoi were mainly used at baths and gymnasia, as well as for funerary offerings.
