A bronze hydria found in a well with the head of a female on the handle.  It dates to about 510 B.C.  There is an inscription on the rim in Greek (not visible) “I belong to Zeus at Nemea.”  Evidently the inscription was added after the hydria was manufactured.  A hydria was used for carrying and storing water.
