The Phoenician civilization is chronologically located between 1200 and 330 B.C., located in the narrow strip of the Mediterranean between Syria and Palestine. The Phoenicians maintained contacts with all the states and empires in their territorial environment, which is why it was a coveted place as a strategic and commercial enclave. Furthermore, its geographical position meant that it had an important maritime vocation.
An alabaster is a type of ceramic used in antiquity to contain oil, especially perfumed oils. Most alabastrons have a narrow body with a rounded end, a narrow neck and a wide, open mouth. They often lack handles, but some types, such as this one, have ear-shaped protuberances in which holes were made. Through these, cords were introduced for transport.
