Stirrup jar

This shape of jug is called a stirrup jar because the handles which are attached to the false neck were thought to resemble stirrups. It dates from the Cypriot Bronze Age. The man who donated this object to the museum was Commissioner of Larnaca between 1879 and 1908 and collected many archaeological objects during his time on the island of Cyprus. Unfortunately he did not record where any of the objects were discovered.
