Greek lyra 2

The Greek lyra (also known as a Cretan lyra) is a pear-shaped 3 stringed musical instrument that is played with a bow. Unlike a violin, it is played sitting vertically on the knee like a viol, rather than under the chin.   The body of this lyra is overlaid with alternate pieces of ebony and ivory.
