In the material culture of classical antiquity, a phiale (Ancient Greek: φιάλη [pʰi.á.lɛː]) or patera (Latin pronunciation: [ˈpatɛra]) is a shallow ceramic or metal libation bowl. It often has a bulbous indentation (omphalos, "bellybutton") in the center underside to facilitate holding it, in which case it is sometimes called a mesomphalic phiale.
