Phaistos (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork) by C Michael Hogan Middle Minoan II pithos at Phaistos. This specimen can be dated to the subject period (2000 to 1750 BC) based upon the rope and scroll designs, and the emergence of large pithoi at Phaisto and Knossos in the Midlle Minoan II periods. The rope design was common to emulate the real ropes that would have been fastened about the Pithos for transporting and tethering it.
