Minoan Greek false - neck amphora with an octopus

Handmade Greek pottery minoan false - neck amphora with an octopus

Minoan stirrup-jar featuring an octapus is replica of the original found in the museum of Hraklio Crete 1500 B.C. 
The stirrup-jar is also known as ''false-necked amphora'' because of its vertical neck which was closed and the liquid was poured through a collateral spout on the shoulder of the vase. Its structure supposedly provides a mechanical advantage by which one could accomplish more efficient and less wasteful pourring. False-necked amphora were used for storing and transporting wine, aromatic oils and olive oil.
