Oil, wine, and cereal were stored in pithos, big clay containers, sometimes up to 2 m high. Amphoras, ceramic round pots with narrow neck and two handles, were used for preserving and transport of liquid and solid food. Apart from ceramic, they were also made of marble, alabaster, glass, and precious metals. Amphoras were use to preserve wheat, honey, grapes, wine, olive oil, olives, salted fish, dates.
At parties, the wine was diluted with water and mixed in kraters. After that, it was poured in carafes – oinochoe, and the wine was drank from ceramic kylikes, cups with two handles.
