The rhyton was a ceremonial horn, made of earthenware, that was used in libation rituals from Persia to Greece and Rome. Wine (or another liquid) was poured through the opening in the top and is sprinkled on the altar or hot coals via the small opening in the tip.
This rhyton is based on a Roman original from the 1st century BC. It is handmade from earthenware and has a small grip. It ends in a ram's head, which is an oft-used symbol with rhyta. The rhyton is 25-28 cm large.Product details:
