Phoenician terracotta amphora, ca. 4th-3rd century B.C.

Piriform jar of Phoenician origin with a small circular mouth and an exvasate rim. It has a truncated conical body with a wide base and is decorated in reddish tones and concentric circles. It has a certain superficial wear of the paint in its upper and lower part. Its narrow, straight and small neck has a cylindrical shape, with a single small sinuous handle and a triple division emerging from its upper part. The Phoenician people had an important influence on the wine culture of the Greeks and later on of the Romans, which led to an indirect influence on the European expansion of wines.
