Ancient Pig-Shaped Baby Bottle Found

2 posts in this topic

Italian archaeologists have discovered an ancient terracotta pig which worked as a toy as well as a modern-day baby bottle.

Known as guttus, the unique vessel dates back about 2,400 years, when the "heel" of Italy was inhabited by the Messapian people, a tribal group who migrated from Illyria (a region in the western part of the Balkan peninsula) around 1000 B.C.

Thats so cute, and in great shape.

Makes sense though, the pig shaped vessel no doubts represents the pig which mated with the monkey. Sure if they keep digging, they will find a monkey shaped vessel too.

:whistle:
