JUDAEAN DECANTER valued at $2,600
JUDAEAN TERRACOTTA WINE/OIL DECANTER 8th-7th Century BCE
This Judaean decanter dates to the period of the 1st Temple in Jerusalem and after the division of the tribes (Iron Age II).
The Judaean decanter served the dual roles of wine and oil decanter. In similar decanters found at Lachish there have been references to a dark or smoked wine although another reference is to raisin wine.
The anointing of the Kings was done with oil and perhaps using a similar decanter.
For an archaeological perspective on the decanter see Amiran, Ancient Pottery of the Holy Land p.262-263.
For a similar item, see Israel Museum accession number IAA 1980-1044.
Estimated value: $2,600
