Aryballos UR Flask, Iraq
From UR – a Sumerian city in ancient Mesopotamia – located in Iraq. Greco-Roman influence. Notice the red stripes around the upper part of the flask.
Acquired and uncovered from 1963 through 1969 by a couple who extensively traveled the Mideast and Northern Africa.
Personally examined by a state museum director. He has assured me that it is indeed original and not a reproduction or facsimile.
This flask is in very good condition.
