Byzantine Clay Wine Jug

$439.95

Byzantine jug used for water, wine or oil.

This is a lovely Byzantine terracotta jug discovered in Israel and dated ca. 500 – 650 AD, the early Byzantine Period. The lamp measures 14.3 cm and is covered with a heavy earth encrustation. This jug was actually made in a mold, and is made of rich, orange colored clay.  A raised ring encircles the filler-hole and a larger raised ring grows from around the top to enclose the opening. The handle has four vertical lines in dark red stripes or lines on the front and back with a concentric circle on the top. The raised ring base also has a concentric circle in the center.

A great historical piece from early Christianity!

Comes with a certificate of authenticity and all required documents for export.
