Throughout the eastern Mediterranean today, as in antiquity, the date is a staple of life. On the wall paintings of Egypt and on the coinage of Judea, the date palm appears as a symbol of abundance and prosperity. This unusual little vessel imitates the fruit with its wrinkled skin. We are not certain what it contained, but we are charmed by its humorous observation of nature just as the ancients must have been. - (GF.0336)
