Cypriot terracotta askos in form of ram, 1700-600 B.C.

An askos is a ceramic vessel that consists of a handle on top and a spout on one end. These vessels were used to contain and pour small amounts of liquid, especially oil, as they were used to fill lamps. Specifically, this askos is very curious as it is shaped like a ram and is also very ornate with straight, undulating lines that run all the way through the animal's body.
