Pythagoras Ceramic Cup with Acropolis

Handmade Greek ceramic pythagorean cup decorated with Parthenon of the Athenian Acropolis

Handmade Greek ceramic pythagorean cup decorated with Parthenon of the Athenian Acropolis. A lovely souvenir from Greece. 

According to tradition, Pythagoras, a greek philosopher and mathematician who lived in Samos in the 5th B.C., created the Greedy Cup, also known as Pythagorean cup, in order to teach the citizens of Samos the virtue of moderation, equality and justice. While using the cup, one has to make sure that the cup is not filled over the limit, which is inscribed on the inside of the cup, otherwise, its entire content will be spilled.  

The Acropolis of Athens is an ancient citadel located on a rocky outcrop above the city of Athens and contains the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance, the most famous being the Parthenon. Parthenon is dedicated to Athena, the greek goddess of wisdom, patron and protectress of the city of Athens. The construction of Parthenon began in 447 BC and was complited in 438 BC, although decoration of the building continued until 432 BC. Iktinos and Kallikrates were the architects of the temple. Parthenon is thought to be the symbol of ancient Greece, Athenian democracy and Western civilization.

Having its inner surface glazed, the cup is perfectly usable (containing wine, water etc.).
