Greek Antiquities
Italy (Probably Canosa, Apulia), Daunian, Funnel Mouth Urn, c. 480 - 318 B.C.

|Pottery| |Antiquities|, |Italy| |(Probably| |Canosa,| |Apulia),| |Daunian,| |Funnel| |Mouth| |Urn,| |c.| |480| |-| |318| |B.C.|
Daunia comprises the north of Apulia from Bari to the promontory of Gargano, but pottery of the Daunian type is found beyond these limits to the north and west. Canosa was the center of production and exported far afield. Daunian pottery was somewhat barbaric but highly original and maintained its identity long after the work of neighboring regions was Hellenized. This unique vessel type with its huge funnel mouth is variously described in references as an urn, an olla, or a krater.
AG43827. Daunian funnel mouth urn; cf. CVA London, British Museum vii, Great Britain 10, pl. 462, 2 - 3, Collectible, funnel mouth reconstructed with a missing fragments, otherwise intact, 20cm (7 7/8") tall, rim diameter 21cm (8 1/4"), c. 480 - 318 B.C.; shaped by hand (no wheel), pinkish light brown clay, very large funnel mouth, globular body, two horizontal loop handles and two solid handles split at the top; painted black and brown geometrical motifs, primarily horizontal bands; ex Alex G. Malloy; $720.00 SALE PRICE $648.00


Judaean Kingdom, Hasmonean Dynasty (Maccabees), Miniature Archaic Style Oil Lamp, c. 167 - 37 B.C.

|Oil| |Lamps|, |Judaean| |Kingdom,| |Hasmonean| |Dynasty| |(Maccabees),| |Miniature| |Archaic| |Style| |Oil| |Lamp,| |c.| |167| |-| |37| |B.C.|
This tiny Hasmonean era lamp imitates a shape and high base of pinched-rim stepped base oil lamps used in the Kingdom of Judah during the Iron Age IIC, 720 - 586 B.C. During the Hasmonean era, archaic imitative lamps were popular in Jerusalem and the surrounding area. They reconnected the Jewish people to the golden age of the Davidic dynasty centuries before. This particular specimen is particularly small, less that half the size of most of the Hasmonean imitatives and would fit inside of the bowl of most similarly shaped Iron Age lamps.

Hasmonean Judaea Archaic Style Folded Buff Oil Lamp; Tushingham fig. 22, 7 (larger and without high base), Choice condition, tiny chip in base; 5.2cm (2") long, 4.0cm (1 5/8") wide, 2.7cm (1 1/8") high, buff clay with chalk inclusions, strongly pinched spout forming an elongated channel and U-shaped spout, near vertical saucer walls, rounded turned-out rim, thick flat "stump" base; ex Mera Antiq (Yossi Eilon) Tel Aviv, found in Israel; $500.00 SALE PRICE $450.00

This Hasmonean era lamp imitates the style of much earlier Bronze and Iron Age pinched rim oil lamps. During the Hasmonean era, these archaic imitative lamps, more finely made and smaller than most of the originals, were popular in Jerusalem and the surrounding area. They reconnected the Jewish people to the golden age of the Davidic dynasty five centuries before. See our Pinched| Rim| Oil| Lamps| page in NumisWiki.

Judaea, Hellenistic Pottery Unguentarium, c. 290 - 40 B.C.

|Holy| |Land| |Antiquities|, |Judaea,| |Hellenistic| |Pottery| |Unguentarium,| |c.| |290| |-| |40| |B.C.|
Unguentaria were small vessels used to hold scented oils, cosmetics, pigments, salves, medicines, dried herbs and unguents. An unguent is a soothing topical preparation spread on wounds, burns, rashes, abrasions or other injuries. This spindle shaped-bottle (fusiform unguentarium) type appeared in Palestine early in the 2nd century B.C. and was gradually replaced by piriform unguentaria in the latter half of the first century B.C.

Judaean Kingdom, Hasmonean Dynasty (Maccabees), Hellenistic Sunburst Style Local Lamp, c. 150 - 30 B.C.

|Oil| |Lamps|, |Judaean| |Kingdom,| |Hasmonean| |Dynasty| |(Maccabees),| |Hellenistic| |Sunburst| |Style| |Local| |Lamp,| |c.| |150| |-| |30| |B.C.|
The Hellenistic sunburst design was meant to suggests the lamp is a little sun and was popular around the Eastern Mediterranean. Most similar published specimens have a small side lug (handle). This simpler type without a side lug is reputedly found mostly or entirely within areas once ruled by the Hasmonean Kingdom (Maccabees). It was apparently a smaller production made for local use.
AL93881. Judaean, Hasmonean, Sunburst Style Local Lamp; Kennedy Type 2, cf. Adler 44 (lug on right shoulder), Warschaw 18 (decoration on nozzle), Choice condition, complete and intact, 9.1 cm (3 5/8" long, 5.5 cm (2 1/8") wide, 3.4 cm (1 3/8") tall, c. 150 - 30 B.C.; mold-made, black slip on brown clay, round biconvex body, sunburst design on the shoulders around the fill hole, long tapering round tipped nozzle; $300.00 SALE PRICE $270.00

Most Palestinian lamps of the second and first centuries B.C. were of local workmanship and style. Some lamps, such as this type, "show general pan-Hellenistic features, but their origin is beyond doubt because of provenance, comparative material and fabric." -- Rosenthal, R. & R. Sivan in Ancient Lamps in the Schloessinger Collection.
AL78087. Judaea, Hellenistic Style Local Lamp; cf. Qedem 8 322; Sellers 1933 p. 51, fig. 42; Revel Collection 48, Choice condition, tiny chips in rim, soot on nozzle, 7.9cm (3 1/8") long, 5.2cm (2") wide, 3.4cm (1 3/8") high, c. 200 - 30 B.C.; pink-orange clay, cream slip, round body with rounded sides, high tapering rim on filling hole, elongated nozzle, low string-cut disk base; ex Mera Antiq (Yossi Eilon, Tel Aviv, 22 Jul 2009), found in Israel; $300.00 SALE PRICE $270.00
