"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
This one reminds me of the Hittite Ring Jugs still made in the Cappadocia region in Turkey to this day. The hole would allow the bearer to carry it over the shoulder and underarm and just tilt to pour the liquid out.http://www.captivatingcappadocia.com/cappadocia-hittite-wine-jug-chez-bircan/
I didn't even guess it into the right _millennium_.Lurker111
Wooo! While I would have guessed 1700AD, saying I couldn't get it within 100 years made me look closer, and guess pre-Roman, and say 600BC.
I was within 400 years, in the right millennium. :) I guessed 200 BC.
500 BC was my guess. ^_^
Gee, I was going to guess early Michelin.
Wooooo! I was right(ish)! I first thought of the prolific period in Greece around 400BC but realized the marking style wasn't right. It's more simple, geometric, and worn, so I felt it was earlier. Guessed 600BC to 800BC. Feeling validated for that whole day spent in awe only in the Greek and Roman sections of the NYC Met Museum!
