Prefectural Administration of Lakonia
The hand-mill was comprised of two cylindrical stones, the size of a large baking tray, which were placed one on top of the other. In the centre of the lower stone they would fix a pole at the axis around which the upper stone would rotate, at the centre of which there was a hole through which the pole would fit, as well as the produce that they wished to winnow. So that the stones would not make exact contact, they would place an iron washer at the base of the pole, which held the two rubbing surfaces at some distance, otherwise the milled product would be like flour. At some point near the periphery of the upper stone was a wooden handle, with which the homemaker would rotate the lower stone. In the hand-mill they would grind wheat for groats, yellow split peas, etc.
