Triskeles

It’s believed that this object (a bowl?) was created by an artisan near Gela in the end of the 7th century BC. Its details recall those found on the Isle of Rhodes. The striking triskeles at the center of the design demonstrates the association of the ancient 3-legged symbol with Sicily. It was found in 1957 in Castellazzo, near Trapani. Today it is in the archaeological museum at Agrigento.
