Seller: abca-c-sllc5hjngh (487) 100%, Location: Coopersville, Michigan, Ships to: US, Item: 263955347889 Black Juglet - Iron II A Period (1000 - 900 B.C.) Grey ware with burnished black slip. Handle stretching from the middle of the straight neck to the shoulder, an ovid body, and a button base. Amiran - Plate 86, #12. This juglet is virtually identical to one discovered by Eilat Mazar below the foundations of the monumental four-chambered gate complex in Ophel. Her discovery of the juglet in its unique archaeological context allowed for the dating of the gate complex to the time of David and Solomon. In 1986, when Eilat Mazar had just begun re-excavating some of the same areas of the Ophel where her grandfather Benjamin Mazar had dug, she discovered a small black juglet dated to the tenth century B.C.E. immediately below the foundations of the monumental gate complex. At the time, the juglet was one of the few pieces of evidence that could date the complex to the reigns of King David and his son, Solomon. As she has continued to dig below the complex’s foundations, Mazar has identified more tenth-century B.C.E. pottery, confirming that these impressive fortifications may have indeed been built by David, as suggested in the Bible (I Chronicles 11: 7-8). "E. Mazar found a small black juglet sheltered between stones of the structure's foundation courses. The handle attached to the center of the juglet's narrow neck, its small round body, and its button base all suggest that both the juglet and the construction date of the building remains in which it was found predate the eighth century B.C.E. Although the presence of this lone juglet in a foundation course is not sufficient to say with certainty by how long these building remains predate the eighth century B.C.E., the juglet itself is a type traditionally dated to the tenth century B.C.E. that is commonly only found at northern sites demonstrating connections with the Phoenician coast" (Jane M.
