Cypriot Base Ring 1 ware juglet (IMAGE) Tel-Aviv University Caption This juglet was imported from Cyprus. Handmade and fired in a very high temperature, it served — like a modern perfume bottle — to advertise and market its content. When turned upside-down it resembles a poppy-seed pod, from which opium is produced; indeed, remnants of opium were found in the vessel. Furthermore, the decoration of clay strips attached to the body of the juglet represent the incisions made in the pod and the latex (the liquid containing the opiate substance) oozing out of them.
