Cypriot Base Ring I Ware large Bilbil: Late Cypriot I (1600 – 1450 BC)
A slightly smaller than usual large bilbil of the earlier and finer Base Ring I Ware. When exported these are thought to have contained perfumed oil. The much smaller type may have contained opium. Like many bilbils this one tilts backwards.
Size: 22cm high
