Some Cypriote Black on Red juglets (and one imitation)

Here’s a picture a 3 Cypriote Black on Red Juglets from Tell es-Safi/Gath, typical imports from Cyprus to the Levant, dating to the Iron Age IIA-B, which were found in the 9th cent. BCE destruction layer (The “Hazael” destruction level), and on the right, a small, locally made juglet which is an attempt to imitate the shape of the Cypriote vessels (quite unsuccessfully…).

    Hey! i recognize that little guy on the right! Stratum F-8 in Area F (Iron II-C kitchen-bakery). He was an odd little fellow. :)

    You know, Aren, just as remakes of original Hollywood movies cannot outdo the original film (because it is the original), so is the case with this lil’ tilted juglet. Nice try but no cigar.
