Astronomical inscriptions have turned up in all sorts of unexpected places, incl

uding ancient drinking vessels. A 2,600-year-old skyphos (double-handled cup) wa
s pulled from a ditch at the Halai acropolis outside Thebes and seems to combine
the two traditional Greek pastimes of stargazing and drinking.
The wine cup depicts a seemingly random zoological mishmash. On it, we see a bul
l, a snake, a large feral cat (possibly a lion or panther), a scorpion, a hare-d
og creature, and most unexpectedly, a dolphin. At first glance, the cup displays
the common motif of a hunting scene. However, that blasted dolphin voids this h
ypothesis.
Instead, University of Missouri researchers posit that the animals represent con
stellations. The relative positions are inaccurate but only because ancient arti
sans organized the constellations by season and not their placement in the night
sky.
The discovery opens up the exciting possibility that other astronomical depictio
ns have gone unnoticed in plain sight just as the cup itself languished in obscuri
ty at the Lamia Archaeological Museum in Greece.
