Cypriot White Painted bowl with handles: Cypro-Geometric (1050-750 BC)
A wheelmade pottery bowl with two small, vertical handles, a creamy white slip painted with dark-grey, wide bands top and bottom, and inside a circle on the bottom, dark grey handles and rim and a band immediately blow it, inside. A variant of the proto-Geometric footed bowls which are almost identical, except for the foot here replaced with a thin flat disc-base.
