This contest is fueled by the following news: In ancient times, some jugs apparently had no other practical purpose, but for being only room decorations, and also such jugs, which, during its suitability in household utility, were manufactured mainly for offering to the Gods and people as gifts or for distribution as rewards in gymnastic and other competitions (such as, for example, Panathenaea jugs). The placing of jugs in tombs was conditioned by two aims: from one side, the relatives of the decedents wished to decorate his last shelter as best as possible and from the other side to create an ambiance with items, which were useful and pleasing for him while alive, apparently, with such faith, that they may serve him even in the after life. Early painted jugs, which attracted the attention of scientists of the 17th century, were found in Tuscany and later on , they were considered as Tyrrhenian creations (Etruria); but currently, calling them Tyrrhenian creations has completely stopped, and everyone with any amount of knowledge in archeology, does not doubt that the majority of them are Greek creations, and only some, which are different with respect to shape (Canopy jug), the color of clay (black clay drill plough), the nature and painting content and other features are mainly Tyrrhenian items. Almost all the cities of Greece and its colonies were into the manufacturing of jugs but the main manufacturing center was Attic and in particular, Athens and Corinth. From here through trade, they spread across to the coasts of the Mediterranean Sea and the Black sea and penetrated into the continent, whereas the Greek masters, banking on the sales of their products to barbarians, at times, made jugs according to the tastes of the barbarians, which is proved by the findings made in various parts away from Greece.
