Description
This extraordinary vessel almost certainly served a ceremonial function, perhaps containing oil for an anointing ritual. Its precious contents have vanished into the mists of time, leaving us to concentrate more fully on the delicate beauty of the jug itself. How amazing it seems that something so fragile should have endured intact since the golden twilight of the classical age. - (GF.0006)
