Delphi Archaeological Museum

A thymiaterion is a type of censer or incense burner used in the region of the Mediterranean for spiritual and religious purposes and especially in religious ceremonies. This burner is unique in color and it’s so close to the Olympic torch in miniature.

In modern times it can be used as a potpourri burner.
