BURNISHED POTTERY JUGLET
Cypriot; Late Bronze Age, 1550 – 1200 BC

Dark gray metallic burnish, globular body, long cylindrical neck, funnel rim, handle from neck to shoulder, base ring. Two parallel ridges round the neck at the level of the upper part of the handle

Of all the Cypriote ceramic imports found in Israel, the Base-Ring “Bilbil” jugs and juglets of the usual size are the most common (Cf. Amiran 1969, PL 54)

During the Late Bronze Age little jugs, known, as "Bil-bils" were imported into Canaan. Analysis of substances found inside some of them has shown that they were used to hold the drug opium.
