Cyprus, c. 300 B.C.E.

The label on this jug bears the date 300 B.C.E., and though plausible, the date has not been verified. It is probably a local Cypriot common ware for everyday use. It has a spherical body with central spout and handle.

Italy, n.d.

The provenance of this Etruscan tear bottle is unclear. It was donated to the University by Michael V. Molitor in 1990, but the document file has conflicting information about where he received it. One source indicates his mother purchased it at an auction in Brazil in about 1940. A letter in the file refers to a collection of Etruscan and Roman antiquities received in about 1960 by Mr. Molitor's mother from Thomas Chan. Mr. Chan owned an antique shop in Minneapolis, Minnesota and had purchased the collection as a single lot, in Italy in the 1920's. Additional research might clarify the history of this item.

The bottle is flat, with a circular shaped body with a long narrow neck. It was probably hand-blown.
