Kern consisted of five miniature hydriae [Π 3996]
Clay kern consisted on five identical miniature hydriae with piriform body, broad, flaring neck, one veridical strap handle extending from neck to shoulder and two horizontal strap handles on body. The hydriae are set on a ring base, flattened on the underside. This vessel served for liquid offerings and was used during rituals. It had been placed in a pit (called an apothetes) found at an open-air sanctuary dedicated to Demeter and her daughter Persephone. The sanctuary is located at Kastelos, Vrysses and dates in the late 5th and the early 4th century BC.
