Lechythoi are small vase-like cermic pitcher thought to hold perfumed ointment at ancient Greek funerals, and survive in abundance at archaeological sites. Due to their durability and use as grave offerings, they present an excellent opportunity for use in dating the sites at which they are found. This paper presents a careful chronology of these pots and demonstrates the methods by which pottery dating was established before modern equipment allowed carbon dating of organic residue.
