The Minoan Bee was found in the Old Palace cemetery at Chrysolakkos, outside the Palace of Malia, the third largest Minoan Palace on the island of Crete, in Greece. It dates back to the Bronze Age during the Protopalatial Period (1800 - 1700 BC). This is very detailed representation of two bees carrying a drop of honey to their honeycomb. The two bees flank the drop of honey at center in perfect symmetry.
