'Frying Pans' (artefacts)

'Frying Pans' is the name given to a very specific set of archaeological artefacts from the Cyclades, Crete, and the Aegean Islands (and possibly mainland Greece). They are usually 20 to 28 cm in diameter, are highly decorated, and have a variety of 'handles'. They are often made of ceramics, but are also found in stone and bronze. They date from around the early Bronze Age.

Their original intended use is unknown.

They are not thought to have been used in cooking, but suggestions include use as mirrors (when filled with oil), as religious objects, and as salt evaporators (ref.)
