The bull-leaping fresco, as it has come to be called, is the most completely restored of several stucco panels originally sited on the upper-story portion of the east wall of the palace at Knossos in Crete(1450 BCE).

A Pythagorean cup (also known as a Pythagoras cup, greedy cup, cup of justice, tantalus cup or I Koupa Tis Dikaiosynis) is a practical joke device in a form of a drinking cup, credited to Pythagoras of Samos. when it is filled beyond a certain point, a siphoning effect causes the cup to drain its entire contents through the base.
