An amphoriskos is a short form of a jar with two handles usually located on the shoulders of the vessel.The handles are not always suitable for carrying, and it is likely that they were designed for suspension. Like jugs, amphoriskoi were initially blown in ribbed moulds and then firther inflated.

This amphoriskos has a squat globular body and a flat base. Two handles are attached from its cylindrical neck under the rim. - (GF.0061)
