We gave great attention to detail. such as veins and form.
It becomes apparent from a study of the eleven mentioned vases in the National Archaeological Museum, of those from the Ancient Agora in Athens, and of individual examples from other areas (Delos, Chios, Pylos, Aetolia, Macedonia), as well as of the Paphos group, that terracotta vases, which had a therapeutical use were manufactured from the 3rd c. BC on, primarily during the late Hellenistic and Roman periods. They are not particularly common vessels, something evidenced by the rarity of examples from Hellenistic sites. This fact leads to the hypothesis that this might be a category of vases that was manufactured to order – very possibly for a specific group, such as physicians, druggists, or athletes – and did not belong to the common types of Hellenistic vases.
