Punic amphora from Ibiza

The amphora is the characteristic trade container. Thanks to its pointed-base design, it was easy to load are remained stable on ships. This amphora from Ca n’Oliver was produced on the island of Ibiza and, in all likelihood, was intended to contain wine. Amphorae from other parts of the Mediterranean and North Africa, the Italian peninsula and the islands of the central Mediterranean have also been found.
