Description

The aulos, or double pipes, is a distinctively Ephebian instrument. This simple aulos is made of dark wood but is unadorned in any way. It has two divergent pipes, each almost two feet long. They are joined in a small wooden disk called a kareli that acts as a lip guard to keep the lips from losing air as it is blown.
