Perhaps they're some kind of valuable thread for weaving. Or a symbolic gift like "earth & water"...

The first picture is the traditional Greek "Chiton" (a tunic ). The second one looks like they wear some kind of cloak on to of the Chiton. Winter time?

The Ionian Chiton. Similar to the Doric one but it required less pins (or no pins at all-I can't remember) to wear it. It was lighter and more folding.

Are those water-melons?! NAY, I suppose Bee-Hive modells; ointment containers and Frankincense balls from south-Arabia.  Officially on Historical maps the south persian border followed theEuphratis steram but it extended actually to the Coast of "Felix-Arabia(present South-Yemen and even into Egypt(ofcourse)but also Ethiopia and perhaps the North-Somalian Coast.

Really, Greek gifts are comfortable and can be useful in daily routine. That's the reason I buy gifts and present to my friends.


Thanks

So, is that what a chiton looks like? K. A loose wrap-around clothing, with one shoulder exposed? It looks very similar to what  Muslim pilgrims wear when doing their pilgrimage in Mecca.

Poseidon's horses were metaphor for earthquake only!Danayans were very influential among Gods sacrificing and earthquake ruined the walls of Troy!
Earthquake combined with tsunami maybe was gift they  had prayed from,Earth's Ruler of animals!
