Discovered at Chryssolakkos, the burial ground outside the palace of Malia on the island of Crete.

The original pendant (in gold) represents two bees, with wings raised, holding a honeycomb of fine granulated gold between their legs, sipping from a drop of honey or nectar. The pendant is thought to date to ca 1800 BC and is in the Museum at Heraklion in Crete.
