Spouted jug

Description
The shape of this jug suggests it was a lamp filler, used to pour oil into oil lamps. It was made during the Cypriot Iron Age. This was part of a collection belonging to a local amateur archaeology couple but unfortunately they did not record from where they acquired the objects in their collection.
