The great pithoi (storage jars) you see before you, were found in a place named by Evans, the "Magazines of the Giant Pithoi" (Figure 1). These magazines are one of the older parts of the Palace. The pithoi are set apart by their size, number of handles and the richness of their relief decoration with ropes and discs.

On the right you see a staircase which has been reconstructed by Evans and descends to the east entrance of the Palace. The entrance is a robust construction that gives the impression of a "bastion" (Figure 2). From this point it would have been easy to reach an important building of the palatial period, the so-called "Royal Villa" which lies outside the main archaeological site.
