Jug with fluted sides and trefoil mouth

Description
In the ancient world metal objects were often more highly prized and more expensive than pottery items. Pottery vessels were often made to imitate the shapes of their metal counterparts to seem more luxurious than they actually were. This jug is an example of this and dates from the early Cypriot Iron Age.
