A lekythos (plural lekythoi) is a type of Greek pottery used primarily for storing olive oil and perfumes. Most are decorated with a fine-line figural designs. A large number of this white-ground lekythos style are known from graves (especially Athenian graves) were they were left by the family of the dead. The white ground paint was fragile and not suitable for heavy use. Red-figure and entirely black-glazed lekythoi were much more durable and popular for everyday use.

The Elamites called their country Haltamti, but it is Elam in the Hebrew Bible, where they are called the offspring of Elam, eldest son of Shem (Genesis 10:22, Ezra 4:9). To the east of Mesopotamia, Elam was part of the early urbanization during the Chalcolithic period (Copper Age). Written records from around 3000 B.C. parallel Mesopotamian history. In the Old Elamite period (Middle Bronze Age), Elam consisted of kingdoms on the Iranian plateau, centered in Anshan, and from the mid-2nd millennium BC, it was centered in Susa in the Khuzestan lowlands. Its culture played a crucial role in the short lived Gutian Empire of the 22nd century B.C. During the Persian Achaemenid dynasty that succeeded Elam, the Elamite language remained among those in official use
