Terracotta amphora with two handles and pointed base. The amphora is perhaps the best known and most appreciated of all, of ancient manís artifacts and were used to store oil, honey and especially wine drawn off from large fermenting vats. If you could fly back through time, 1800, 2000, 3000 years, you would see these beautifully shaped pottery jugs in homes, kitchens, marketplaces, warehouses, inns and on board the merchant ships of the Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans.
