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; $650.00 (611.00)


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; $450.00 (423.00)

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.
