Kandila

Early Cycladic I-II, circa 3000 – 2800 BC
Fine grained, black veined marble.
H 12 cm

Rounded body with small shoulder and four lug handles; slightly conical, short neck and short foot. Small areas of modern infill to the rim, lugs broken already in antiquity. The drilling of one lug was not aligned precisely enough, resulting in the need for re-drilling as shown on this example.
