Greek Wine Amphora

Place Discovered




Date Discovered

Fragment of a wine amphora from the Greek island Rhodes. The handle bears a stamp with the name of a yearly elected official. Written around a rose, the symbol of Rhodes, one reads [Ep’] iereos Timas[agora] which translates as “under (the mandate) of the (sun) priest Timasagoras”. This identifies the amphora as being made at Villanova (Paradissos) near the city of Rhodes around 184 BCE. This fragment was discovered in the fill of the tomb of Amud at Mleiha and belongs to the late reuse of this tomb.
