Oinochoe

Description
This round-bellied jug (oinochoe) has a long narrow neck, splayed round lip and one handle. It has a raised spiral design on the body and around the neck which is thought to represent a ram’s horn. It was made in the Cypriot Late 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.
