This jar or amphora was found in Cyprus. It is made of a style of pottery known as Bichrome V, where two colours of slip are painted on to decorate the vessel. The patterns include criss-crossed lines around body, a wavy horizontal line at the shoulder, and a line of dots around the neck.
The jar was probably made in or around Amathus, a site near the modern city of Limassol, between 600 and 475 BC.
