10 Of the many studies, that of von Merhart, in Festschrift des R-G Zentralmuseums in Mainz, 2 (1952), 171, has perhaps the best range of illustrations of most of the types in question; see also Coblenz, W. in Arbeits. u. Forschungsber. z. Sächs. Bodendenkmalpfl., 1950–51, 135 ; strainers also at Hart, (Bayer. Vorgesch., 21 (1956), 46), Langeneisling, (Germ., 30 (1952), 265), and other sites.

17 Cups in the Dresden-Dobritz find (of cups, bowls, strainer and small ‘ bucket ’) were certainly so finished, and further evidence (with unfinished examples) comes from Riesa-Gröba in the same region (Coblenz, loc. cit., and technical appendix by A. Pietszch). The characteristic central indentation made by the pin of the lathe chuck within the omphalos which these examples show appears also on the Knossos gold cup already mentioned, the ‘ Octopus ’ gold cup from Dendra, and probably also the Enkomi silver cup, referred to by Hood, loc. cit. 87. The technique is, of course, well-known in much later contexts (cf. Ulster Journ. Arch., XX (1957), 85). I hope to discuss this matter more fully on another occasion.

18 Ventris, M. and Chadwick, J., Docs, in Myc. Greek (1956), 130, arguing (partly on absence of strainers I) against Evans’s case for beer-drinking Minoans.
