Uluburun Shipwreck KW 23 Oil Cypriot lamp 3D Model
These lamps were found nested one insidethe other inside pithos KW 251 and dunnage was recovered around them. Their walls are very thin and brownish, but unlike the thicker lamps, they don´t show signs of use at all, so they can be considered as cargo. As a matter of fact, three of the ten pithoi on board were filled with this fine ware, clearly of Cypriot origin. Up to 140 Cypriot pieces of ware were retrived. Among them, there were wall brackets, buccheroi, milk bowls, lug-handled bowls, base-ring bowls, a single juglet and white-shaved juglets. Best parallel known comes from Enkomi site IIIC Further examples can be found all over the island (1125-1075 b.C). The cargo is also very significant to understand Late bronze age international pottery trade. The only source besides Point Iria deposit in mainland Greece (dated XII b.c). This digital model was made from a hand made replica of KW 23 by Architecnica productions for the didactic activity: Uluburun: A shipwreck in your pool.
