Description

A stirrup jar from the Greek Mycenaean period. Such vases were the most common form of storage jars. They have a stirrup shaped handle with dummy spout or neck (the real spout is vertically beside it). Similar jars were found at Amarna and they are shown on Eighteenth Dynasty wall-paintings.
