"Wine Jar" pottery jar, restricted, carinated; found in fragments.
Reconstructed storage jar. The jar is one of a series of jars found sunken into the floor along an interior wall of a "kitchen" in a well-preserved Neolithic house. A reddish residue found inside the jar tested positive for wine and terebinth tree resin. The jar had a capacity of approximately 9 liters (2.5 gallons). It is one of the oldest known wine storage containers in the world.
