From the collection of Teddy Kollek, first mayor of unified Jerusalem, Roman Terracotta Skyphos decorated with palmette motif found in the Holy Land. Spherical body with wide mouth, hemitropic handles and flaring foot. Small portion of rim repaired from original piece, otherwise in excellent condition. 4 1/4" high. Skyphos is a two handled deep wine cup on a low flanged base or none. The handles may be horizontal ear-shaped thumbholds that project from the rim (in both Corinthian and Athenian shapes), or they may be loop handles at the rim or that stand away from the lower part of the body. Skyphoi of the type called glaux (owl) have one horizontal and one vertical thumbhold handle.
