Amphora

Of the wide range of pieces made by the Iberians, one of the most common is the amphora. Inspired by Phoenician and Carthaginian models, this small handled amphora without a neck was intended for trading the main produce yielded in this country: cereals. The fact that so many have appeared, added to the storage capacity of the settlement's silos, denotes Ca n’Oliver's intense trading activities.
