Truncated cone urn, Molí de l’Espígol

<p>An ceramic urn with a conical trunk, from between 500 and 300 BC, from Singular Building A at Mol&iacute; d&rsquo;Esp&iacute;gol.</p>

An ceramic urn with a conical trunk, from between 500 and 300 BC, from Singular Building A at Molí d’Espígol.

This urn has a light, ring-shaped pedestal. It has two handles, horizontal in cross-section, on the upper part. A corded moulding round the external rim would have served to hold and clasp the lid. The decoration consists of four groups of six bands or filaments which diverge from one another, starting from the ends of the handles. The two at the very outside are shaped like fish hooks.
