Bronze handmade bullĘs head.
Wonderful rhyton in the shape of a bull's head. The original rhyton with a bullĘs head was found in the Little Palace of Knossos made if stone. It was a libation vessel used in sacred rituals. It was filled with the appropriate liquid through the hole in the neck and emptied during the ritual through another hole in the nostrils. It is an outstanding example of the skill of the Minoan civilization dated from 17th to 15th century B.C. and is currently stored in the archaeological museum of Crete.
