Here was one of my favorite displays, can you guess why the bottom of these amphora’s are pointed? After filling them with wine or olive oil they would be loaded on to the trade boats and pushed into the sand that filled the hull of the boat for ballast and to protect and stabilize the precious goods. Once the boats arrived to their destination, the amphora’s would be unloaded and nudged into the buyers sandy beach.
Brilliant simplicity, no?
Again, brilliant simplicity on the I’île de Limpari!
After the dive we set back to the boat to enjoy final views of the sunny wine growing hills of Limpari.
