Itzik, Joe, thanks for the image. I know it is probably a much later period, but it gives me a nice visualization for a neck-shoulder-handle stump fragment I have from Ifshar Phase A “late” (late 20th- early 19th century BCE). The transition from the neck to the shoulder has a typical MB IIa rope decoration and the neck has an internal diameter of at least 14 cm. Karin Kopetzky tried to convince me that it is one of the “Amphoren-Krug” they have at Daba (e.g., Stratum G/4), which also have handles going from the shoulder to the neck, but I thought it was more of a pithos given its size. great find and excellent restoration.
Late Bronze? Pithos?
