The terrace and the Kernos, Malia


The Paved Terrace


The unique Malia Kernos was found in this terrace. The large circular table with thirty-four small depressions around its circumference and a large circular depression in the centre is thought to have been an offering table used in religious rituals involving first fruits. It is supposed that the visitor, on entry, would be involved in a ritual before formally entering the palace.
