The ongoing study of the Geometric pottery found in the excavation of the Siderospilia necropolis (Priniàs) allowed us to single out a group of large kraters on tall pedestals whose figured painted decoration is inspired by the iconographic repertoire of the coeval Cretan metalwork and other artefacts in different media. The present paper deals with the morphologic and suggests in some brief concluding remarks the role played aspects of this production, the cross-craft interactions between pottery and metalwork, and suggests in some brief concluding remarks the role played by these oversized kraters in the dynamics of identity construction in Iron Age Crete.
