Over the centuries, the body material, shapes and decorations of unglazed wares, have hardly changed and may present features that were characteristic over large areas. This earthenware jug is comparatively small. It has a globular and regular symmetrical body indicating that it was made on a wheel. It also has an extremely wide opening. The base is flat. The decoration, which is deeply moulded, only covers the globular body, dividing it into two rims. The top rim consists of symmetrical abstract motifs while the lower one consists of Quranic inscriptions. The body of the jug looks like it could have been carved by using a separate mould.This jug was most likely a water jug, or a drinking vessel. - (LK.010)
