Cypriot ceramic oinochoe, 1700-600 B.C.

An oinochoe is a jug with a truncated cone body, a developed neck, with a handle on the top and a lobed mouth. Its function was to take the wine out of the crater before serving it. For this reason they only had a handle that allowed them to introduce it and serve the wine. The body of the oinochoe is decorated with bands of lines of different thicknesses that border the whole piece, as well as some concentric circles in the part from which the handle emerges. The polychrome used is black and red.
