Two Minoan Moulds for Small Cult Objects Reconsidered

In 1899, nearby the modern village of Palaikastro in eastern Crete, two remarkable stone moulds were found by chance. These moulds, which were mainly intended for the manufacture of small cult objects, are considered by many as products of the Late Minoan III period (ca 1420/10-1075/50 BC). This is due to the resemblance between the female figures who are holding up attributes on both moulds and the large well-known terracotta figures from Late Minoan III shrines at Knossos, Gazi, Karphi, etc. For stylistic and iconographical reasons, it is argued in this paper that these moulds should be dated much earlier, to Middle Minoan II or III (ca 1875/50-1700/1675 BC).
