Terracotta spouted jug with high handle and slip lid


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 152

The form of this plump jar with a lid that can slip back and forth on the handle is probably descended from a type of jug produced by the Hittites, who flourished in central Anatolia during the second millennium B.C.
