Jarras de base plana y estrecha importadas del litoral sirio-libanés a la Sefelá y la planicie costera de Israel

Eli Yannai, Amir Gorzalczany, Martin Peilstöcker


Se encontraron jarras con pico de base plana y estrecha en muchas excavaciones en Israel, como también en el litoral sirio-libanés y en Chipre, principalmente como ofrendas depositadas en las tumbas. Estas son similares a las conocidas jarras con pico, que eran jarras producidas localmente con bases puntiagudas afiladas. El análisis petrográfico realizado en ellas mostró que esas vasijas eran producidas en talleres ubicados en el litoral sirio-libanés y eran exportadas a Chipre y al sur del Levante a través de rutas dinámicas de intercambio. La extensa distribución de estas vasijas a lo largo de la planicie costera de Israel indica que eran intercambiadas primariamente en un comercio de base marítima. Sus patrones de distribución en el sur del Levante son consistentes con el origen de su producción a lo largo de la costa Sirio-Libanesa.
