Cypriot Amphora: Archaic I (750-600 BC)


A very well preserved early Archaic, Bichrome Amphora.  A typical shape and size with quite elaborate decoration.  Considerably larger sizes up to 1.5 metres tall are also quite common, as well as tiny versions of only 6 or 7cm.  A small restoration of a section of the lip from 2 pieces.

Size: 27 x 23cm

(From the collection of Dr Takey Crist, Jacksonville, North Carolina, acquired late 1980s. Exhibited: The Cyprus Museum, Jacksonville, North Carolina, 1988 - 2018.)
