Phaestos is the name of a Minoan palace dating back to the Bronze Age in South Central Crete, overlooking the Messara Plain. This design is based on the splendid pithoi that were discovered virtually intact on this site in 1908. They were thought to have been placed either side of a majestic staircase leading to another level of the palace. The Ancient Minoans had taste. Available in 4 different sizes
