Egyptian Influence and Aegean Transformation at Akrotiri, Thera: The Jug no. 8960 With a Libation Scene

Abstract

In the 2nd millennium B.C. Aegean and Egyptian relations are well attested by a variety of artifacts.  In this article, the depiction of an emblematic falcon together with a libation scene combining principal Aegean cult elements on a jug from Akrotiri, Thera, is explored as probable corroborating evidence for sun worship in the Aegean, analogous but not identical to its Egyptian counterpart.
