A Short Story
From antiquity, the art of pottery was developed in Samos, which reaches to the present day. In the pottery workshops in the villages of Mavratzaioi, Koumaradeοi, Myloi and Karlovasi, beautiful vases are made. The most famous vase of Samian pottery is the “Pythagorean Cup”.
According to tradition, Pythagoras made a mug, applying the laws of physics, for his students to drink wine in moderation. Internally, the mug had a line that defined how one should fill it. One drop above and the mug emptied all its wine from a hidden hole in the base. With a simple application of plumbing, Pythagoras teaches the meaning of the measure, that is, to enjoy the wine we already have in our cup, drawing the maximum benefit!
