Dragon Head Beer Mugs Are Anything But Understated

Etsy sellers/Potters Jason and Jane Chischilly created a series of mugs based on “rhyton” drinking vessels, which were apparently common in ancient Persia. It seems ancient Persians weren’t concerned with putting their drink down.

A rhyton (plural rhytons or, following the Greek plural, rhyta) is a container from which fluids were intended to be drunk, or else poured in some ceremony such as libation (.libation (Σπονδή spondee in Greek) is a ritual pouring of a drink as an offering to a god or deity).

Check out a series of additional designs after the break.
