The ancient ancestors had a remarkable varieties of special vessels, which are used both for mixing wine, maintaining, and to cool before consumption. So we have:
- Jar, a large vessel, usually without decoration
- Stamnos, a vase with a narrow base, but rising up widens, narrows slightly to reach a wide neck. With two side handles and cover.
- Amphora, a large vase with two vertical handles start at the rim and finishing in the body. The jars with necks are two types, the Panathenaic and oxypythmenous. The latter are cylindrical handles and body acid which leads to the base, so it can be built on the ground or in artificial light. With them were transported to be exported so the wines are found mainly in ancient wrecks of merchant ships.
