Caminetto Madur Smooth Pot (KS)

Product Number: 004-006-9347

Although a bit out of Caminetto's neck of the woods, the "Madur" may be named after a mountain in Sürmene, Turkey - although that is strictly an educated guess. Well, as a very large Pot (KS: "king sized" [cavernous chamber included]) shape, my guess may be more than just mere speculation. The mountain has quite an interesting history to dig into, as well. In antiquity it was known as Theches, the spot from which a Greek army first sighted the Black Sea during its flight from the forces of the Persian king Artaxerxes II in 401 B.C. When they finally saw the sea, from the summit of the mountain a great cry went up, "Thalassa! Thalassa!"--"The sea! The sea!" In their joy the Greeks built a great stone cairn. If you stand on the mountain top today, you can see no fleeting glimpse between mountains, no view snatched from a precipitous track, but a stupendous vantage point where perhaps 400 soldiers stood to gaze down on the distant sea.
