Terracotta Vase in the Form of a Lobster Claw
ca. 460 BC
Because so many aspects of Greek life depended on the sea, a vase in the shape of a lobster claw is not surprising. It is, however, exceptional and may be a variant of the askos—a bag-shaped oil container provided with a vertical mouth and strap handle. The Dionysiac iconography of the lobster claw suggests that it was a novelty item used at symposia (drinking parties).

This is cool as hell.
So is the nugget of information that “symposium” meant “booze-up.” I feel this definition should be reinstated posthaste. Academia would be a hell of a lot more fun.
