Glazed on inside[edit]

I would like to suggest that kraters were glazed on the inside not only for "aesthetic reasons" but for a practical functional one, as well. Logic follows that unglazed ware would allow the liquid contents to seep thorough the non-vitrified surface of the earthenware vessel therefore it is likely that glaze was used to make the surface less permiable and more apt to hold liquid.

Agreed. I wouldn't want to drink from a clay vessel if it wasn't glazed, as anyone who has ever touched clay will agree. I edited that sentence. Alex.g 10:12, 11 January 2006 (UTC)

Mixed Wine[edit]

The book The Road to Eleusis discusses what was mixed together in ancient 'mixed wine'.

The Road To Eleusis: Unveiling the Secret of the Mysteries
by Carl A. Ruck, Albert Hofmann, R. Gordon Wasson, Jeremy Bigwood, Jonathan Ott, Carl A. P. Ruck, Huston Smith, Danny Staples
http://amazon.com/o/asin/091514820X

The book has no index. The index entries for coverage of 'mixed wine' would be:

Mixed Wine - main coverage: 51-52, 99-104
Mixed Wine - slight coverage: 47, 91, 93, 98, 106
