During the third millennium BC several significant developments and changes took place in the Aegean. The Aegean islands were in the forefront of those cultural developments. On the basis of their common characteristics and their peculiarities, they formed several cultural unities. In the cultural unity of the Northeastern Aegean islands, Lemnos was one of the most important centers.

The island’s excellent geographical location, in front of the entrance to the Hellespont, and its exceptional natural relief were the basic reasons for the development of a dense network of settlements over the entire island. Important settlement centers at Poliochni, Koukonisi and Myrina in the west coast, bear witness to the prosperity it enjoyed during Early Bronze Age and Middle Bronze Age. In the course of old and new excavations that have been conducted in Myrina, important architectural remains have been brought to light. The prehistoric settlement at Myrina dates from 3000 to 2000 BC and it occupies an extended area. In this paper we will focus on the presentation of a few, yet very important vases, known as depata amfikypella, found in the prehistoric settlement at Myrina, Lemnos.
