Clay Pyxis from the Canaanite Period

The Bible describes a time following the Tower of Babel even when people spread out over the face of the earth. Some of these people traveled to the land of Canaan and settled there. The Canaanites cultivated the land, built cities, and plied their trades.  Their descendants were the people groups whom Abraham encountered when he entered the Promised Land.

“So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city. Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of  all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.” – Genesis 11:8–9

This clay pyxis dates to the Early Bronze Age, the period just before Abraham arrived in Canaan. It is of reddish clay and features a rounded body. It has a simple flared neck, and small handles that allowed the user to suspend the pyxis from a string.

Height: 3″ / 7 cm.
