Hand-modelled ceramic Talayotic vessel


Museu Arqueològic d’Eivissa i Formentera (MAEF- 4575)

4th-3rd c. BC


9.7 x 8.7 x 9.7

This vessel was found in a Punic tomb at the Puig des Molins necropolis. It can probably be dated between the 4th and 3rd c. BC, and was made on the island of Menorca, where these types of small vessels are common. The Talayotic culture from Mallorca and Menorca is quite different from other contemporaneous cultures of the western Mediterranean basin, and is characterised by its unique architectural elements and hand-made pottery. 3D Model: UAB Open Labs
